A 500 limited edition collection of Nina Antonia’s poetry and prose.  Best known for her fusion of rock n’ roll and literature, ’13 Knots’ is a compendium of anti-heroes, demon lovers,  ragged Bohemia and England’s esoteric past. From Johnny Thunders to Pan, Nico to Lenny Bruce, the journey is one of creative transcendence and asks who pays the piper for our dreams? Is it to be found in crack- house, carnival or guitar riff? ’ Although ’13 Knots’ marks a departure from Nina’s critically acclaimed books, including ‘Johnny Thunders – In Cold Blood’‘ & 'The New York Dolls – Too Much Too Soon’, the theme of life teetering on a tightrope, remains eternal.

Includes Foreword by Caroline Coon, Introduction by Vice Lesley and illustrations by Emma Doeve.
