Jacko: His Rise and Fall: The Social & Sexual History of Michael Jacksonby Darwin Porter
Synopses & Reviews
Before he turned white, and still had a nose, before scandalous kiddie sex charges and weird marriages, before money woes and widely televised humiliations, Michael Jackson was the world's most exciting show-biz legend. In this expose by celebrity biographer Darwin Porter, Blood Moon presents the first-ever complete saga of an incredible American life--the good times, the very bad times, the desperate attempt to stay on top, and the international aftermath of those lawsuits when everything, including Neverland, came crashing down. Even his loudest detractors admit that they love his music. This candid bio takes you behind closed doors to explore the star-studded, bizarre world of America's most maligned superstar. This title was nominated as a finalist by Foreword Magazine for Best Biography of 2007, and it was a Runner-Up for Book of the Year from the Hollywood Book Festival. As cited by London's Guardian & Observer, Don't Stop till you get enough. Darwin Porter's biography of Jacko isn't easy to put down. It's dangerously addictive.
In the 1980s, Michael Jackson was the most controversial figure in the world. He generated fame greater in some places that any other public figure. Dripping with ironies and with text that really connects the dots, this is the about the most all inclusive biography yet written about America's most bizarre star.
Subtitled "The Sexual History Of Michael Jackson", this is the most comprehensive and all-inclusive biography written about the King of Pop. By the author of the popular "Brando Unzipped", it includes startling new revelations about the Wizard of Odd.
