The extraordinary life and times of Carl Barat, Libertine. From his childhood in suburban Basingstoke, through times of literally being down and out in London and Paris, to success as one of the co-founders of one of Britain's most revered bands, Carl Barat has gone through the glass darkly as bands fell apart around him, friendships faltered and egos and hedonism threatened to pull his life apart.
Beautiful, witty, heartbreaking at times - I was a big fan of Carl's in my youth and this re-stoked my passion for his music as well as filling me with nostalgia. Really recommend this.

Must listen for any Libertines fans. I loved this book as it really gives you an insight into what was happening in the lives of Carl, Pete, John and Gary.
Insightful audio book. Delving into a side of Carl we don't see. He spoke so fast at times so I was occasionally rewind the audio.
