Publisher's Synopsis

The Sunday Times bestselling hit memoir from Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker.

'It's real gold... its storytelling first class' Sunday Times

What if the things we keep hidden say more about us than those we put on display?

We all have a random collection of the things that made us - photos, tickets, clothes, souvenirs, stuffed in a box, packed in a suitcase, crammed into a drawer. When Jarvis Cocker starts clearing out his loft, he finds a jumble of objects that catalogue his story and ask him some awkward questions:

Who do you think you are?

Are clothes important?

Why are there so many pairs of broken glasses up here?

From a Gold Star polycotton shirt to a pack of Wrigley's Extra, from his teenage attempts to write songs to the Sexy Laughs Fantastic Dirty Joke Book, this is the hard evidence of Jarvis's unique life, Pulp, 20th century pop culture, the good times and the mistakes he'd rather forget.

This is not a life story. It's a loft story.

'Nostalgic, playful and beautifully designed' Daily Mail

'Brilliant...lurid, entertaining' Daily Telegraph

'Terrific... Very funny' Guardian
