Derek Jarman tells the story of his discovery that he is HIV+ and, in a series of flashbacks, looks at his life - his difficult relationship with his father, his discovery of his homosexuality and the dramatic exposure of his first homosexual relationship, his university days and his coming out at art school in the company of contemporaries such as David Hockney and Patrick Proctor. He goes on to describe his early work as a stage designer , his affair with Robert Mapplethorpe and his early encouragement of David Lynch. The cast list also includes Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, Kenneth Anger, Boy George and Julian Clarey.

Review:

"The most beautiful & furious book of all time" (Olivia Laing)

"An essential – urgent – book for the 21st Century" (Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Gallery)

"A marvellous, moving book" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Jarman gave his garden a certain narrative; perhaps he treated it a bit like a film or theatre set. His films were visionary, eccentric, romantic and rebellious, all of which could also be said about his garden" (Guardian)

"It's hard not to warm to the man who, in the face of all the personal and professional hardships described in this book, can still regard himself as 'the most fortunate film-maker of my generation" (Guardian)
