Description - A Drink with Shane MacGowan by Victoria Mary Clarke

Hell-raiser Shane MacGowan's acclaimed and surprisingly lucid memoir This bibulous, drug-indulgent and anarchic rock legened was born on a small farm in Tipperary, won a scholarship to Westminster, was rapidly expelled, became a rent boy, then a central figure of punk and the hugely influential star of The Pogues. MacGowan's music, innovative and powerful, is as distinctive as his chaotic, breakdown-scarred, drug and alcohol-fuelled lifestyle. MacGowan has an enormous fan-base hungry for stories of his wild behaviour, but this is also a book that celebrates this unique and charming musician, and offers insight into his remarkable perspective on this world - and the next!

Author Biography - Victoria Mary Clarke

Shane MacGowan and Victoria Mary Clarke have been together more-on-than-off since 1987, their relationship consummated in a shambolic King's Cross flat to the strains of John Coltrane after drinking several bottles of retsina and discovering a shared love of C17th Irish poetry. A journalist and writer, Victoria features in Nick Broomfield's seminal Kurt Cobain film, when she was working on a controversial biography of Courtney Love. Shane now divides his time between Ireland and north London, and continues to write and perform solo, in collaboration with other artists and with the Popes.
