Jarvis Cocker has written a memoir titled Good Pop Bad Pop that will be out May 26, 2022. Technically he calls it "an inventory," not a memoir, but one thing's for sure: it's a book. Jarvis also says "It's not a life story, it's a loft story," with the book's conceit being that while cleaning out his loft he comes across all sorts of objects that inspire memories of key moments from his life:
From a Gold Star polycotton shirt to a pack of Wrigley's Extra, from his teenage attempts to write songs to the Sexy Laughs Fantastic Dirty Joke Book, this is the hard evidence of Jarvis's unique life, Pulp, 20th century pop culture, the good times and the mistakes he'd rather forget. And this accumulated debris of a lifetime reveals his creative process - writing and musicianship, performance and ambition, style and stagecraft.
