About the book:

In this extraordinary book, Alexander Masters has created a moving portrait of a troubled man, an unlikely friendship, and a desperate world few ever see. A gripping who-done-it journey back in time, it begins with Masters meeting a drunken Stuart lying on a sidewalk in Cambridge, England, and leads through layers of hell&back through crimes and misdemeanors, prison and homelessness, suicide attempts, violence, drugs, juvenile halls and special schoolsto expose the smiling, gregarious thirteen-year-old boy who was Stuart before his long, sprawling, dangerous fall.

Shocking, inspiring, and hilarious by turns, Stuart: A Life Backwards is a writers quest to give voice to a man who, beneath his forbidding exterior, has a message for us all: that every lifeeven the most chaotic and disreputableis a story worthy of being told.
