A remarkable feat, utterly true. This decade's Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (Douglas Coupland, author of Generation X and Girlfriend in a Coma)
Coal Black Mornings is a triumph . . . a bracingly honest work raised way above the celeb book fray by Anderson's obvious talent for writing . . . revelatory and delivered with writerly panache (John Harris Mojo)
Fascinating . . . gorgeously written. On more than one occasion it made we well up . . . most certainly not just for the fan club (Guardian)
A rich, sad and honest tale (Olivia Cole GQ)
Beautifully crafted and brilliantly well-written . . . his memoir is a thought-provoking meditation on how our childhoods form the people we become, as well as a love letter to London . . . The book is perfect as it is, but there's no question that we need a second volume (Anna van Praagh Evening Standard)
Coal Black Mornings is excellent: evocative, thoughtful and frank; an instant hit in a minor key. Anderson is particularly good on his unusual upbringing . . . as accomplished a writer of elegant prose as he was of narcotically enhanced lyrics about urban ennui (Neil Armstrong Mail on Sunday)
a thrillingly energetic, bracingly entertaining snapshot of a writer hitting his first full flush, leaving you wishing two things. One: that you'd formed a band. Two: that he changes his mind about documenting the coke-blurred mornings to come (Record Collector)
An ineffably romantic coming-of-age story; a beautiful reminder of the magic that happens round the edges (Sunday Times)
Generous, funny, poignant (Financial Times)
Perfect prose, thanks to which Coal Black Mornings does the job of describing the beauty in the banality better than any music memoir since Patti Smith's sublime Just Kids (Classic Pop)
A brilliant, beautifully written memoir from Suede founder and lead singer Brett Anderson.See all Product description

Anderson has a real gift for poetry, and his description of his childhood is incredibly detailed. It’s also an account of the British way of life now long gone: of times before multi - channel TV, central heating, the internet, and helicopter parenting. Highly recommend.
Beautiful, poignant, lyrical & so, so readable - I loved it!
I enjoyed the references to London and the way Brett keeps your attention with his accounts of child life through to adult.
Buy it now. You do not need to be a Suede fan to appreciate this book.
