Horse's Neckby Pete Townshend, Pete Townshend (Preface by)
Townshend explores life's "razor-edged pathways" in this bold, impressionistic work of autobiographical fiction, with "intriguing experimental writing packed with vivid imagery" (Library Journal) that strikingly mirrors the musical compositions Tommy and Quadrophenia. As he recalls his childhood, the decadent indulgences of success, and a new discovery of life itself, Townshend re-creates in fiction a powerful personal odyssey from the inside out.

I had the Australian publishers getting this in before their expected release here in Australia. Townshend wrote of life in a vast way. Often lost, full of empty thoughts that you imagine you are the character or even be in Townshends thoughts. My favourite is Fish Shop and was so inspired on doing a small film on it which was just a dream. I had this book over 15 years ago and still remember its feelings. Pete Townshend can really write...10/10
