Try This At Home is the brand new memoir from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Road Beneath My Feet. 

Taking 36 songs from his back catalogue, folk-punk icon Frank Turner explores his songwriting process. Find out the stories behind the songs forged in the hedonistic years of the mid-2000s North London scene, the ones perfected in Nashville studios, and everything in between. Some of these songs arrive fully-formed, as if they've always been there, some take graft and endless reworking to find 'the one'. In exploring them all, Frank reflects with eloquence, insight and self-deprecating wit on exactly what it is to be a songwriter.
