The brand-new memoir from the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Road Beneath My Feet.    Taking 36 songs from his back catalogue, folk-punk icon Frank Turner explores his songwriting process. Find out the stories behind the songs forged in the hedonistic years of the mid-2000s North London scene, the ones perfected in Nashville studios and everything in between.  Some of these songs arrive fully formed, as if they've always been there; some take graft and endless reworking to find 'the one'. In exploring them all, Turner reflects with eloquence, insight and self-deprecating wit on exactly what it is to be a songwriter.    From love songs and breakup songs to political calls to arms; songs composed alone in a hotel room or in soundcheck with the Sleeping Souls, this brilliantly written memoir is a must-have audiobook for FT fans and anyone curious about how to write music.
