More from the Amazon.com description:
In this intimate account of Amy Winehouse’s life, music, and untimely death, her father Mitch Winehouse gives readers full access to his daughter’s private life in the midst of her immensely public triumphs and tragedies.Amy Winehouse needs no introduction. A critically acclaimed recording artist, she touched millions with her music during her short but extraordinary life.Following her tragic death in July 2011, Mitch Winehouse wants to tell her incredible story in full. “Amy, My Daughter” will take the reader through her mischievous early years, her rise to stardom and to her much publicised struggles with addiction. The book will bring the many layers of her life together – the personal, the private and the public – to create a fitting tribute to his much loved daughter.
There is a fear that Mitch might sugar-coat some things because it’s hard for a parent to fully recognize some of the hard truths about their children, but this is a must read for anyone who’s obsessed with Amy. It will probably be refreshing to learn more about what Amy was like as a precocious little girl, and who she was to her parents. We’ll definitely be reading this.
Proceeds from the books sales are to go to The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which has a broad mission to help young people in need, especially those suffering from addiction, illness, disability, or financial distress.
