SHE LIVED FOR KICKS..'IT'S A BALL, MAN'.
FIRST PRINTING 1967
Is Rosemary Your Daughter? is a shattering, true story that concerns every one of us.
Rosemary, the desperate lonely unwanted child of an unmarried mother. Her metamorphosis from a young teenager into Bloody Mary the beatnik raging and torn-worn out with its own rottenness. Beaten by its own sorrow.
In England today there are many who are sick in mind and body, but surely nothing can touch for sadness and shame the mixed-up, untidy lives of England's outcast young. the unwanted, the beats and the bastards. All the out-to-shock-the-world young who are tarnished before they even know what life is about.
Rosemary lived for 'kicks', for 'it's a ball, man'. Drugs and sex followed her everywhere, along with the long-haired, unwashed males she slept around with.
Rosemary began by being lonely and unhappy. She took her own life after the jazz and jabs became unbearable, because nobody cared a damn about her.
