Synopses & Reviews
This unconventional biography of arguably the baddest boy in rock explores themes of androgyny, sex, S/M, drugs, devil worship, childhood fears, and selling out. This updated edition includes analysis of Manson's recent activities, such as his new album The Golden Age of Grotesque and his contribution to soundtracks such as Queen of the Damned, along with new details on his personal life, from recent legal actions against him to his relationship with fetish model Dita Von Teese.
Rather than conforming to the structures of conventional biography, this book performs something closer to a cultural autopsy on the androgynous satanic idol, analyzing the themes of perv-rock, bad drugs, and surgical supports. 40 photos, 20 in color.
