Wild Thymes on the 22 was an Iris Wildthyme short story anthology edited by Stewart Sheargold and published by Obverse Books in 2018.

Publisher's summary[]

Iris has always been a bit of a name-dropper. She was there when it all began, when it peaked, when it started going pear-shaped. Iris was there: tinkering with the spaceship design on the Star Wars set, upsetting Warhol's films in the Factory, sexing it up with Chaucer, conjuring ghosts with Kate Bush, cross-dressing and undressing with Fanny and Stella, and arguing for her very existence with a nefarious biographer known as Magrs

Pop star, fashion diva, writer, artiste, botherer, ratbag and liar. She's done it all. Or undone it all.

Now, in this exclusive tell-all collection, taken from her journals, we hear Iris in her own words and get the inside gossip on her wild times…
