Don Paterson: A Poet's Life

Famous for his poetry, Don Paterson’s new book barely mentions it. Toy Fights is a raw, brutally honest, and painfully funny memoir about his first 20 years, shot through with a passion for music. Paterson explains, this is ‘a book about schizophrenia, hell, money, narcissists, debt and the working class, anger, swearing, drugs, books, football, love’… and bags of Dundonian self-deprecation. He talks with the director of V&A Dundee, Leonie Bell.
