Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins US | An Unauthorized Autobiography | In the honorable tradition of eccentricity and dandyism of Lord Byron, Oscar Wilde and Quentin Crips, comes Sebastian Horsley with his disarming memoir of sex, drugs and Saville Row. | Growing up at High Hall in Hull with his alcholoic mother, who regularly attempted suicide, his stepfather, a cult member dressed in orange and his father, a crippled millionaire, Sebastian Horsley couldn t wait to leave. Searching for happiness, meaning and a good outfit, he embarked on a doomed career as a punk guitarist, a stormy relationship with Scotland s most notorious gangster, a wildly successful period as a stock-market entrepreneur and a near fatal stint as a shark-hunter. Sebastian charts his years as a dandy, an artist, a male escort and a brothel connoisseur. His was a life of decadent variety: from love affairs to marriage to a harrowing descent into heroin and crack addiction. The book evokes his desperate attempts to get clean, culminating in his crucifixion in the Philippines. Finally, he is a man who has found a kind of peace. Painfully honest and completely unflinching, it is written with a refreshing lack of sentimentality, a lot of self-knowledge and a gift for entertaining. "I ve suffered for my art, now it s your turn." | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 290 gr | 368 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780061461255
