Billy Childish - The Uncorrected - Tangerine Press
  • Two editions: trade paperback & 50 numbered copies

TO BE PUBLISHED JUNE 2018

"...the individuality of Childish will shock and abuse the reader."
— taken from Dr Umber's lively introduction.

The Uncorrected Billy Childish
was first published in 2009 as a ‘Penguin Art Edition’ by L-13 Light Industrial Workshop, in tandem with handbound, limited editions by Tangerine Press. Penguin’s lawyers intervened, insisting that all paperbacks were destroyed, resulting in an infamous book burning event in central London in 2010. The limited editions are long out-of-print and swapping hands for large sums on the collectors’ market. Unusually for Mr Childish, The Uncorrected... has been broken down into themed sections (Love & Sex; Abuse & Forgiveness; Emotional Secretions, etc).

Includes black & white woodcut illustrations by Bill Hamper.

Fully updated, revised with new poems not included in the original edition.

Chosen with an introduction by Dr Albirt Umber.

SOME OTHER COMMENTS ON MR CHILDISH'S POETRY:

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

Over the last 35 years, Billy Childish has gained a cult status worldwide. In addition to writing and publishing over 40 volumes of confessional poetry and 6 novels, he has recorded over 150 LPs and produced many hundreds of woodcuts and paintings. In 2010, he was the subject of major concurrent retrospectives at the ICA in London and White Columns in New York, curated by Matthew Higgs and Richard Birkett. Mr Childish continues to show his work internationally, with recent solo exhibitions in New York, London and Berlin.
