Beautifully realised with an appealing deadpan style...If you're looking for something along the lines of Ian Hunter's classic Diary Of a Rock 'n' Roll Star you're in the right place here. (Irish TImes)

His friendship, fallout and redemption with Robert Smith is the central tenet of the book. His affection for RS shines through. Tales of scrapes, booze and rock and roll excess are covered, though there scope for more depth.
Having read this off the back of Peter Hook's substance, which went into the minutiae of each album, gig and so on, made me want to know more about what happened during Lol's time in The Cure.
His honesty and openness in coming to terms with his alcohol problems was touching. The acknowledgement of stupid decisions such as the court case with Robert Smith refreshing.
At times the book is a little twee (perhaps too many references to Imaginary Boys). As a fan of the band who has every album and seen them first in concert in 1979 I'm glad that he's written the book and more importantly that Lol has found peace and happiness without a bottle.
A good good read, I just wish there had been a bit more content.
