Debut autobiographical novel of Billy Childish. Hilarious and poignant, Childish's alter ego struggles, abused and desperate, through a harrowing childhood--the lie of his family-- to emerge rebellious and misunderstood, in a world distorted by alcohol and bullies.
After a childhood of abuse at the hands of family and teachers, I couldn't be shut up‚ any more. My anger was such that if My Fault hadn't been written then, quite seriously, I would have killed.
