The book is the story of how James Swan became Barnsey, as we know him, and is a memoir about the frustration and energy of teenage sex, drugs, violence and the ambition to achieve far more than you have. It is compassionate, gritty, surprising and also funny, and details his childhood, plus the efforts he made to manage a very tough life and escape the misery of the suburbs he lived in.
