 Synopsis  Information
Pint-sized, acid-tongued and velvet-voiced, Amy Winehouse was more than just the Queen of Camden. Within an industry of pretenders, Amy was the ‘real deal’ – a uniquely gifted artist who remained true to herself till the end. By July 2011, it seemed Amy had turned a corner, determined to stay clean for the sake of all those who loved her. The world waited eagerly for Amy’s comeback album – only to be cruelly disappointed. Newly in love with life, Amy died before this final recording ever saw the light of day. She was just 27 years old. In this richly illustrated biography, Mick O’Shea delves into every aspect of Amy’s life – from childhood through to her tragic early death – capturing the legacy of her raw and heartfelt music, along with everything that made her so very special.
