I Wanna Be Yours by John Cooper Clarke - signed 1st edition hardback


This product is sold out

We know how much our customers adore the five foot eleven Salfordian genius and reluctant national treasure that is JCC - signed copies of his recent poetry book The Luckiest Man Alive flew out of the door, so his long-awaited memoir will need little introduction. And yet for the sake for formality...

This 1st edition (not 1st printing) hardback copy of I Wanna Be Yours has been signed by the author, John Cooper Clarke. The signature is on a bookplate which has also been stamped with the author's drainpiped and winkle-pickered silhouette. 

This is a book as wry, funny, moving and vivid as only JCC  could deliver. Inimitable and iconic, it will be a joy for both lifelong fans and for a whole new generation. As a writer Cooper Clarke's voice is equally unmistakable and his inimitable dry drawl shines through the prose.

I Wanna Be Yours covers an extraordinary life, filled with remarkable personalities: from Nico to Chuck Berry, from all the great punks to Bernard Manning, and on to more recent fans and collaborators Alex Turner and Plan B - who have championed his work. Interspersed with stories of his rock and roll and performing career, John also reveals his boggling encyclopaedic knowledge of twentieth-century popular culture, his private passions and guilty pleasures: from Baudelaire, Pam Ayres and Rimbaud to football to Coronation Street, comprising horse racing and gambling, politics and jokes - and much more.
