About this book
Described as "Toast" with attitude or "Bad Blood" with art, this intimate, funny and unsettling memoir by one of Britain's most provocative artists appeals on many levels.
Fantasy took over his life, in a world of battles ruled by his teddy bear, Alan Measles. Here, he tells his own story. Early childhood in Chelmsford, Essex is a rural Eden that ends abruptly with the arrival of the violent milkman who becomes his stepfather, leading to constant swerving between his parents' houses.
