Faithfull: An Autobiography

Faithfull: An Autobiography

Marianne Faithfull, David Dalton


From pop stardom during the depths of habit to her punk-rock comeback, Marianne Faithfull's existence captures rock 'n' roll at its such a lot decadent and its so much damaging. Faithfull's first hit, 1964's "As Tears pass By," opened doorways to the hippest circles in London. There she hung out with the main luminous of the younger, wealthy, and reckless, together with Bob Dylan, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones.
Her mythical affair with Mick Jagger produced one hit unmarried, "Sister Morphine," and numerous headlines. Faithfull left the connection a strung-out junkie. suffering to kick medicinal drugs and revive her musical profession, she recorded Broken English in 1979, an edgy, hard-hitting, severe triumph. As sincere in her autobiography as in her song, Faithfull is a searing, intimate portrait of a girl who examines her adventures and misadventures with no flinching, with no apology.
