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.

Praise For Amy Winehouse (Lives of the Musicians)

"Solomon's eloquent prose empathetically conveys the tragedy of Winehouse's demise... For readers who know the songs, but not so much the artist behind them, this is a decent primer." - Publisher's Weekly,
