Now in paperback comes the candid, inspiring memoir of becoming a musician by the renowned composer and pop star. Far from a standard-issue celebrity autobiography, "A Cure for Gravity" is a smart, passionate book about music, the creative process, and coming of age as an artist.
From the Publisher:
The successful rock musician and songwriter chronicles his life in music, from his miserable childhood in a rough naval town, through his days as a student at the Royal Academy of Music, to the succession of bands leading up to his solo career.
Annotation:
In this autobiography, pop musician Joe Jackson shares his feelings about those who have inspired him, including the rock band Steely Dan and the composer Ludwig van Beethoven. He also illuminates the unfortunate circumstances of his childhood in a bully-ridden neighborhood that lacked appreciation for asthmatic artists such as himself. While describing his climb to pop celebrity status, Jackson adds comic details to his early days as a performer struggling for recognition.

Praise

London Review of Books
"Also released in October is Joe Jackson's gritty, funny and revealing memoir of making it in music: A CURE FOR GRAVITY." - Iain Banks 10/14/1999

New York Times
"This is an intelligent, thoughtful look into the mind of an artist who always considered himself an outsider; Jackson led a rather ordinary lower-class existence, but his musical talent set him apart. He describes the grueling, sometimes painful day-to-day life of a struggling musician...." - Charles Salzberg 12/12/1999
