In Long Drawn Out Trip: My Life, Gerald Scarfe tells his life story for the first time. With captivating, often thrilling stories, he takes us from his childhood and early days at Punch and Private Eye, through his long and occasionally tumultuous career as the Sunday Times cartoonist, to his film-making at the BBC and much-loved designs for Pink Floyd's The Wall and Disney's Hercules. Along the way he has drawn Churchill from life, gone on tour with The Beatles and thoroughly upset Mrs Mary Whitehouse. It is a very personal, wickedly funny and caustically insightful account of an artist's life at the forefront of contemporary culture and society.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A fascinating and surprisingly gentle read, from a man famed for his venomous nib -- Nick Newman * Mail on Sunday *
Compelling . . . the childhood chapters are extremely moving -- Ysenda Maxtone Graham * Daily Mail *

Gerald Scarfe's ghoulish-looking Mother, Pink and Schoolmaster creations defined the visual aesthetic of Pink Floyd's
The Wall, stage show and movie. But artist Scarfe's story is much bigger, encompassing sweeping social changes in the 60s and beyond
