AMY WINEHOUSE - A Losing Game, Mick O'Shea

A Losing Game

By Mick O'Shea

As known for her fraught personal life as her chart-topping songs, Amy Winehouse – who died at the age of 27 in July 2011 – was one of the most compelling vocalists in the world. But despite this fact, it was her self-destructive excesses that made headlines. Drinking binges, self-harm, eating disorders, drug abuse, and a turbulent marriage overshadowed her music even as her record sales soared, and the media watched eagerly as Amy’s world imploded. This richly illustrated biography tells her story in full, from childhood through to the pleasures and pains of superstardom, her blazing talent, the years she lost to her addictions, the final days before her death, and the legacy of her raw and heartfelt music.
