A memoir. This was reprinted from Derrick’s own copy, following his death. The earlier printer had closed and the files had been lost, so the text includes some handwritten corrections and deletions, deliberately left in by his publisher.

Derrick was as a major chronicler – in poetry and prose – of working class Nottingham. His memorial reading was held at the shop.
