Author Nick Johnstone unravels the all too short life and career of one of Britain's most brilliant and troubled stars.
Amy Amy Amy tracks Winehouse's erratic journey to fame from her North London Jewish family home, detailing her meteoric rise to stardom and the two albums that catapulted her to the top. Her well-publicised problems with alcohol and drugs, anorexia, bulimia and personal relationships kept her in the headlines, always threatening to obscure her extraordinary musical gifts.
Amy Amy Amy redresses the imbalance, giving full measure to Winehouse's talent while offering an honest account of her multiple personal crises.
This updated edition of Amy Amy Amy takes the story up to July 2011 and Amy's tragic and unexpected death at her home in Camden Town following an aborted European tour and her final appearance on stage with her goddaughter at the Roundhouse in Camden.
