“Bandit Poet” by Jeremy Reed is an outrageously controversial memoir, about his life in London from the early eighties, which celebrates the brilliant losers and a life lived on the edge of the edge.

Called by the Independent ‘British poetry’s glam spangly shape-shifting answer to David Bowie’ Jeremy Reed is a unique phenomenon in poetry – a romantic bandit fuelled with Rimbaud’s visionary impulse.
