Publisher's Summary

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.

Insightful

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.

Excellent

Absolutely fascinating from start to finish. Carl has a beautiful grasp of the English language. Expertly written with interesting content, what’s not to like. 5*

A work of art

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.
