Amy Winehouse by Kate Solomon celebrates one of the most
popular musicians of our time.
In her intense, brief life, Amy Winehouse’s music spoke directly to
millions. And since her death, her fans have only increased.
Amy Winehouse is one of those pop stars that comes along so
rarely we’re not sure we knew what we had when we had her. Her
story speaks to us not because the relentless tabloid coverage of
her darker days unfolded in real-time, but because she tapped
into deeply personal yet universal feelings and displayed them
to us in all their painful, raw glory. She turned our demons into
something we could dance and sing to, and she skewered those
who wronged her in ways we could only dream of. Kate Solomon
writes with authority on Winehouse’s short but influential life,
creating a biography that is unlike any other.
Amy Winehouse is the second book in Laurence King Publishing’s
‘Lives of the Musicians’ series of short but highly readable
biographies of our most famous and beloved musicians.
