The first book ever devoted to the strange and wonderful drawings of Sexton Ming, a writer, musician and painter extraordinaire. Ming's meandering mind takes readers on an otherworldly journey steeped in so much black humour, tangential weirdness and biting observation of the human race that it is almost impossible not to sit back and just say 'Yes!' A founding member of the Medway Poets who was once called a faded intellectual by Ralph Steadman (and saved Billy Childish's life), Ming is a genuine counterculture hero.
