Product Overview

A musical child prodigy, Nina Simone ought to have enjoyed a glittering classical career. But rejection by the all-white board of an elite conservatoire traumatised her for life. As the High Priestess of Soul she sang `My Baby Just Cares for Me' with intense passion---yet her own relationships with men were marked by abuse, exploitation, and even rape. She was fiercely committed to the cause of civil rights---but was tyrannical towards both her musicians and her own family. She craved affection and safety---yet thought nothing in later life of rewarding her adoring audience with hours of waiting and vitriolic harangues. Now, in the first full biography of this magnificent but tortured artist, David Brun-Lambert tells the full story of Nina Simone's genuinely tragic life.
