Don Paterson was born in Dundee, Scotland, in 1963 and spent his boyhood living on a working-class council housing estate. 'Toy Fights' is the remarkable story of his first 20 years. This is not just a book about music and family, but also about 'schizophrenia, hell, money, narcissists, debt and the working class, anger, swearing, drugs, books, football, love, origami, the peculiar insanity of Dundee, sugar, religious mania, the sexual excesses of the Scottish club band scene and, more generally, the lengths we go to not to be bored.
