Anecdotal, conversational, intimate, and revealing, this is the iconic artists's raw and honest account of her life, her friends, her triumphs, and mistakes. A wry observer of her slightly off-kilter world, Marianne muses nostalgically about afternoons languishing on Moroccan cushions at George and Pattie Harrison's, getting high and listening to new songs. She fondly recalls the outlandish antics of her Beat friends Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs; is frequently baffled at her image in the press (opening the paper to read of her own demise: "Sixties Star in Death Plunge"); terrified by the curse sent by Kenneth Anger; and mortified by her history of reckless behavior; not to mention her near-death experience in Singapore while looking for an opium den. Legendary characters from Henrietta Moraes and Donatella Versace to Sofia Coppola, Juliette Greco, and Yves St. Laurent's dog show up in this anecdotal memoir. Here is Marianne on the dark side of the 1960s and the bright side of the 1990s, which saw her collaborating with the likes of Blur and Jarvis Cocker; compelling recollections from an unconventional childhood in her father's orgiastic literary commune; and a hilariously decadent few days at Lady Caroline Blackwood's deathbed. This is as intimate a portrait as we've ever had of Marianne, as she meditates on sex and drugs, confronts her alter-ego, the Fabulous Beast, and faces her own mortality in her battle with breast cancer. Since her last book, Marianne has, in her own words, "made quite a few records, gone on many tours, tried to play it straight, and . . . Well, the rest is the subject of this book."
