About this book
A vivid memoir from the acclaimed poet. Garfitt recounts his life, from stable boy to jazz dancer, Oxford dandy to 1960s drop-out. We see the world inside his head as he cuts loose, and is committed to a ward in a mental hospital.
A memoir where Roger Garfitt takes us into his confidence as he tries on different selves, from stable boy to jazz dancer, from Oxford dandy to Sixties drop-out. It provides an account of what it is like to feel the world too acutely, to love too obsessively, to go right to the very edge and, miraculously, survive.
