There have been two books specifically written about Kirsty (both have since been reprinted):
- Jean MacColl’s biography and account of the Justice for Kirsty Campaign
- Karen O’Brien’s biography
Kirsty also merits pleasing mentions in some miscellaneous books:
- Jean MacColl has also published her own autobiography (writing as Jean Newlove) called Yum Di Dee Dah (see below)
- Still Suitable for Miners (Billy Bragg biography)
- Lemmy’s autobiography
- The Stiff Records Story (Richard Balls 2014)
