Recommended by Claire
‘Jefferson turns her typically elegant scrutiny towards a cultural icon, a life the whole world thinks it already knows, in this short, brilliant book. I cannot think who could have done this better.’
From the publisher
Michael Jackson: provocateur, icon, enigma. Who was he, really? And how does his spectacular rise, his catastrophic fall, reflect upon those who made him, those who broke him, and those who loved him? Almost ten years on from Jackson's untimely death, here is Margo Jefferson's definitive and dazzling dissection of the King of Pop: a man admired for his music, his flair, his performances; and censured for his skin, his erratic behaviour, and, in his final years, for his relationships with children.
