Comments on The Uncorrected Billy Childish:

"Base and unpleasant... [The poems] demand and deserve attention."
Never Imitate

"The book has the feel and heft of the old Black Sparrow Bukowski books. Billy doesn’t pull punches and doesn’t write for the genteel, nor should he. Anger runs through his writing, but insight does too and Billy has rightly become a treasured outsider voice."
Morning Star

"This is book as well-dressed friend. And, in addition to the sense you have of the man, almost in his entirety, there is the edition, which is beautiful – beautiful paper between your fingers, beautiful design, like an ornament in paperback form. You want an introduction to the poetry of Billy Childish? It doesn’t get better than this.”

SOME OTHER COMMENTS ON MR CHILDISH'S POETRY:

"A seething, dyslexic, better looking Bukowski."
Guardian

Billy Childish was born in Chatham, Kent in 1959. After leaving secondary school at sixteen, he worked at Chatham Dockyard as an apprentice stonemason. Initially denied an interview for the local art school, during six months of employment at the dockyard he produced hundreds of drawings that gained him entry to St Martin’s School of Art. Mr Childish’s defiance to authority and his insistence on integrity and personal style above the formalities of educational requirement led to his eventual expulsion from art school in 1981.

Mr Childish then embarked on an artistic, literary and musical odyssey exploring a broad range of worldly themes including war, history, social protest and religious philosophy, as well as his own experience of alcoholism and the sexual abuse he suffered as a child. With over forty years of continual creative activity, Mr Childish has gained a cult status worldwide; he has written and published five novels and over seventy volumes of confessional poetry, recorded over 125 albums, and has received international critical acclaim for his work as a painter.
