The first-ever in-depth biography of one of the world's most legendary and reclusive superstars -- four-time Grammy Award winner and R&B legend Luther Vandross.
Written by one of contemporary music's most noted journalists, this intimate portrait delves into Vandross's elusive sexuality; his yo-yo dieting; his feuds with Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker, and En Vogue; the 1986 car accident that killed his best friend and nearly destroyed his career; and the massive stroke in 2003 that temporarily silenced the voice so many had come to love.
Readers finally get an inside peek at the balladeer who has sold more than twenty million albums over two decades, and whose most recent album, Dance with My Father, entered the Billboard charts at #1. Luther gives you a backstage pass into his life and longing.
