Cult rock star Pete Doherty reveals himself and the sources of his inspiration as never before in this collection of personal journals from his early days in London. The journals are reproduced just as he wrote them, in his own handwriting, complete with poems, drawings, photo-collages, and song lyrics. In sharp distinction to his tabloid image, this is the candid self-portrait of a young poet with serious artistic ambitions soon to rise to international fame with his acclaimed bands The Libertines and Babyshambles. An authentic piece of rock history for all of Pete’s fans, and anyone who cares about new directions in today’s music.

'The prose is strikingly raw... the cumulative effect is curiously touching.' -- OBSERVER
'These diary entries, childhood reminiscenes and prose from 1999 onwards prove that under the drug hoover's brow there's a unique brain.' -- Q MAGAZINE
'This book is like everything else Pete Doherty has ever done - at times brilliant, at others annoying, but never less than interesting.' -- SOUTHERN DAILY ECHO
