Dandy in the Underworld is the story of Sebastian Horsley's life. It begins with his bizarre and neglected childhood at High Hall, where his alcoholic mother regularly attempted suicide (his drunk, crippled billionaire father moved out when her lover moved in). Searching for happiness, meaning and a good outfit led to his doomed career as a punk guitarist and his reinvention as a millionaire stockbrocker and shark-hunter. Escaping a stormy relationship with Scotland's most notorious mass-murderer (who was also sleeping with his wife), he arrived in the capital. The invites to the party promised, 'Sebastian Comes to Save London'. It charts his years as a dandy, an artist, a visitor of prostitutes, a period as a prostitute and his love affairs with the two Rachels. Then, there is his descent into heroin and crack additction, his desperate attempts and even more desperate failures to overcome it and his Crucifixion. Finally there is a sense of a man who has found a kind of peace. Painfully honest and completely unflinching, it is written with a refreshing lack of sentimality, a lot of self-knowledge and a gift for entertaining. In writing this book, life and art have come together. .. ..
