One of the most insightful and unusual biographies to emerge in recent years. This traces the life of Stuart Shorter, a homeless thief and alcoholic whom Masters was friends with before he stepped in front of a train. Masters describes Stuart's life in reverse order, charting his times on the street and in prison back to a violent childhood.


Alexander Masters lives in London. His second book, 'The Genius in My Basement', was published in 2011.


'Unique and wonderful.' Daily Mail 'Possibly the best biography I have ever read.' Mark Haddon 'This is a very rare and haunting book ! A great first book.' Andrew O'Hagan 'Good books like this appear about once every five years. It's been years since I've been so delighted by a book and so surprised by it ! When I'd finished I felt bereft, as if I'd lost an old friend.' Zadie Smith 'Utterly compelling and very funny.' Daily Telegraph 'One of the most remarkable and touching biographies I've ever read.' Minette Marin, Sunday Times 'I feel so strongly about this strange, funny, sad book that I hardly know where to begin ! My enthusiasm feels almost limitless. A page-turner.' Observer 'Funny and original, a startling book ! By the end I was doubled up in tears, but throughout I was often doubled up with laughter. It is dazzling.' Vogue 'A remarkable biography. Unforgettably moving. A gripping read.' Tim Lott, Sunday Times 'A comedy of errors and horrors deftly handled and with a terrifically droll sense of humour.' Melanie McGrath, Evening Standard 'With his first book, Alexander Masters ! has achieved something remarkable. He has, without patronising, given a voice to the "underclass"; at the same time, without preaching, he shows us the value of even the most damaged of human lives ! a powerful book, humane, instructive and entirely original. Sunday Telegraph 'Alexander Masters has given us a delight ! I recommend it unhesitatingly. Any member of the public should read this. And anyone working to help the homeless will read it, recognising both the triumph and the despair ingrained in aiding Stuarts anywhere.' Roof, magazine for Shelter '[A] marvellous biography. A highly original celebration of humanity.' Scotsman
