'Man, there's nothing like being told you're dying to make you feel alive.'

In 2013, Dr Feelgood founder, Blockheads member and musical legend Wilko Johnson was diagnosed with terminal cancer. With ten months to live, he decided to accept his imminent death and went on the road. His calm, philosophical response made him even more beloved and admired. And then the strangest thing happened: he didn't die. Don't You Leave Me Here is the story of his life in music, his life with cancer, and his life now - in the future he never thought he would see.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Riotous . . . [those seeking wisdom and insight] will be gripped, astonished and profoundly moved * Sunday Times *
A thoughtful, funny and humane book * Spectator *
If you are a music fan, and even if you are not, it would be hard to recommend this book too highly . . . The book, happily, reflects the man - and there can be no higher compliment than that -- Marcus Berkmann * Daily Mail *
Johnson writes like the Mythical Bloke in the Pub speaks. Offering up a cracker of a tale, before going off on a tangent, he adds enough "anyways" and "sos" to make the more dramatic revelations relatable . . . his humour also bubbles through, which is often wonderful * Observer *
A touchingly revealing, funny, poetic and erudite voice . . . Blunt honesty is just one of the many endearing qualities ensuring sweet justice is delivered to this man's extraordinary tale * Classic Rock Magazine *
This snappy life and times reveals Wilko to be as sharp a writer as he is a guitarist * Mail on Sunday *
Gloriously eccentric, mordantly funny and fiercely observant, this autobiography is that rare thing, a memoir by a brilliant musician who writes as well as he plays. -- Jane Shilling * Daily Mail *
Gloriously eccentric, mordantly funny and fiercely observant, this autobiography is that rare thing, a memoir by a brilliant musician who writes as well as he plays * Daily Mail *
