9780099464938: Straight

The autobiography of one of the UK’s most flamboyant and charismatic stars, guaranteed to shock, amuse and tantalize.

In the thirteen years since the conclusion of the first part of his memoirs, Take It Like a Man, Boy George has reinvented himself. As that story closed, George was coming to terms with the fall-out from his drug addiction, the failure of his relationship with Jon Moss and the collapse of Culture Club. For lesser men this would have been the end, but for George it became the start of a period of startling personal and creative reinvention. Told with George’s trademark biting wit, brutal honesty and sparkling insight, this new book will bring his remarkable story up to date: from his role as a world-class DJ spearheading the dance music revolution in clubs all over the world, to his cutting-edge record label, and his role in the theatrical sensation Taboo.

Tracing the momentous twists and turns of Boy George’s personal and artistic life over the last decade-and-a-half, Straight will not just be a riveting companion volume to the bestselling Take It Like a Man, but a truly fascinating book in its own right.

From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"Well-endowed with a shafting wit, Straight communicates and expresses the energy of an intelligent anarchist holding an anti-bullshit device. " The Guardian "George is a first-class gossip with a stirringly viperish tongue. Straight never fails to entertain or provide food for thought." The Daily Telegraph "The best book I've read in a long while. I read it twice in one sitting - it made me howl with laughter and burst into tears." Paul O'Grady "Such a fun read." Sydney Star Observer

Descrizione libro Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From his days as a club face alongside Philip Sallon, Marilyn and Steve Strange, through the years of global pop superstardom with Culture Club, his rebirth as a world-class DJ, as a leading light of musical theatre with the award-winning Taboo, a cutting edge photographer and a confrontational and acclaimed fashion designer, one of the many things you can say about George is: he s never stood still. It s been one hell of a trip. A decade and a half ago, George was coming to terms with the fall-out from serious drug addiction, the failure of his relationship with Jon Moss and the collapse of Culture Club. For lesser men this would have been the end but for George it became the start of a period of remarkable reinvention. Told with George s trademark biting wit, brutal honesty and sparkling insight, this book reveals the whole story, reappraising his rise to stardom and all the madness that followed. He talks about his solo singing career, his initiation into the dance music scene, and his role as the driving force behind theatrical sensation Taboo. George also discusses the achievement of the apparently impossible task of reuniting the famously fractious Culture Club.It is only now, many years on from the glittering, glossy Eighties, that George makes an insightful and often hilarious assessment of the impact of that extraordinary era.
