Product Overview

A captivating, hauntingly sad story of music, madness, and the Manic Street Preachers, this is a dazzlingly written fictionalized account of the lead singer''s tortured lifeRichard has everything to live for, but it doesn''t feel that way to him--not as long as he has a voice in his head telling him he''d be better off dead. The one thing that might save him is that he''s in an increasingly successful band; but the demons that nag him won''t be persuaded. In February 1995, Richey Edwards checked out of a London hotel instead of flying to the U. S. with the rest of the Manic Street Preachers. There were a few subsequent sightings but then nothing. His body was never found, and he was declared legally dead in November 2008. Now "Richard" tells the story of his life--and disappearance--as he might have told it; set in the 1980s and 1990s, it''s a compelling, tragic account of one man''s battle with his own worst enemy--himself.
