From the Publisher:
With Robert Mapplethorpe's full endorsement and encouragement, Morrisroe interviewed more than 300 friends, lovers, family members and critics to form this definitive biography of America's most censored and celebrated photographer. 32 pages of photos.
The brilliant photographer Robert Mapplethorpe (1946–1989) was one of the most infamous figures of the contemporary art world. Patricia Morrisroe, drawing on the numerous interviews she conducted with him and those who know him, has written a remarkable biography that reveals a life even more daring than his art.
Annotation:
Morrisoe spent six years researching Mapplethorpe's life and has come up with this probing and controversial biography--the subject of strident criticism from Patti Smith, one of Mapplethorpe's former lovers. The photographer, who died of AIDS at age 42 in 1989, is best known for his provocative still life photography. 32 pages of photographs.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"Deeply sympathetic....Morrisroe admirably balances frankness with sympathy in this memorable book."

Washington Post Book World
"Thoroughly engrossing...she has succeeded in re-creating the photographer's world of light and dark...as mesmerizing as Mapplethorpe's stare in self-portraits."

New York Times Book Review
"Patricia Morrisroe, a magazine journalist, does not engage in an informed discussion of her subject's work in 'Mapplethorpe: A Biography'; instead she focuses on his progressively degenerate life style....[She] seems well aware of her subject's limitations as a creative artist, and acknowledges his debt to other photographers." - Grace Glueck 06/25/1995
