Editorial Reviews


* Even as confessional memoirs go, David Sterry's Chicken stands out from the rest. Alternately farcical, grotesque, brutal and sad. The Bookseller * Sordid, painful and often hilarious. Guardian * Sterry writes with comic brio ... he's honed a vibrant outrageous writing style and turned out this studiously wild souvenir of a chequered past. New York Times * Unflinching and perceptive without being mawkish, and often very funny. Independent on Sunday --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
