Book details

Writing about Nick Drake leads seventeen-year-old David to Nottingham, where, in the late 1970s, he encounters the formidable singer/songwriter Kevin Coyne and, most weeks, goes to see local legends, Gaffa. This original, beguiling memoir weaves Belbin’s story, from teenage depression to becoming a best-selling author, together with those of Drake, Coyne and Gaffa, drawing on interviews conducted over forty-four years.
