“Barrie Sharpe is one of London’s most colourful characters from the last 4 decades. Whether it be bringing 1970s American Funk music to the masses or heading up the seminal shop “Duffer of St George” he has never been far from the spotlight”.
This book is written in the pain, tears, joy and laughter of my youth. As my words come to fruition the darkness of my earliest memories fade. My story has often been dark but I have also been blessed with much light; I remained in silence for many years, it was not until I spoke that people knew of my thoughts. I was a product of the times and the product became the producer.
My book tells a story that very few are aware of. A story of the darkness that nurtured me and the pain of abandonment, yet I still climbed to the top of the mountain. "Forget that shit you can’t hold me back"!
The book talks of; child abuse, design, violence, mental illness, dancing, gangster business, birth, laughter, pain, religion, fashion, drugs, rape, music, sex, guns, love, death, murder, racism, travel, style, hate, history, injustice, car theft, prison, disappointment, ballet, armed robbery, clubs and prostitution.
Risks and challenges
I can only print this book if I manage to cover the design and printing costs of £4000, for 2000 copies; 500 of these will be the hardbound limited edition. This is not really a profit making project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
