By Jordan Mooney, with Cathi Unsworth

'If you've never read a book about punk, this is the only one you'll ever need.' (Julie Burchill, New Statesman)

The image of Jordan in her white shards of beehive and Mondrian make-up is one of the most iconic in pop history. But nobody knows what was really going on behind those watchful eyes when Anarchy hit the UK.

How did a ballet-mad girl from sleepy Sussex make her way, via the clandestine gay clubs of Brighton and London, to 430 King s Road and the eye of punk's storm? Help shape a revolution and deal with the consequences of being in the spotlight so young? Share hair-raising adventures with McLaren and Westwood; The Sex Pistols; Adam and his Ants; Derek Jarman and Andy Warhol and then just disappear?

With commentary from key players including Vivienne Westwood, Paul Cook, Marco Pirroni, Holly Johnson and her partner behind the SEX/Seditionaries counter Michael Collins plus a wealth of never-before-seen images from Simon Barker, Sheila Rock and Harri Peccinotti Jordan finally reveals her outrageous life story.
