Praise for I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp: An Autobiography…

“[Hell] almost single handedly creating ‘punk’ as we know it.... Few people have been as important--yet as underappreciated as Richard Hell. Poet, musician, fashion icon and terrific, terrific writer. Chances are, you have been deeply influenced by Richard Hell your whole life. You just didn’t know it.”
-Anthony Bourdain

“Richard Hell designed and executed a sustained performance of rock stardom... a bravura spectacle that was half modern art and half picking up chicks. Radically self-aware, he tells the story by thrusting the reader face-first into the good and the bad, wielding prose keen as a diamond knife.”
-Luc Sante, award winning author of Low Life
