(Century (London), Jan. 1, 2005)
The autobiography of one of the UKâs most flamboyant and charismatic stars, guaranteed to shock, amuse and tantalize.In the thirteen years since the conclusion of the first part of his memoirs, Take It Like a Man, Boy George has reinvented himself. As that story closed, George was coming to terms with the fall-out from his drug addiction, the failure of his relationship with Jon Moss and the collapse of Culture Club. For lesser men this would have been the end, but for George it became the start of a period of startling personal and creative reinvention. Told with Georgeâs trademark biting wit, brutal honesty and sparkling insight, this new book will bring his remarkable story up to date: from his role as a world-class DJ spearheading the dance music revolution in clubs all over the world, to his cutting-edge record label, and his role in the theatrical sensation Taboo.Tracing the momentous twists and turns of Boy Georgeâs personal and artistic life over the last decade-and-a-half, Straight will not just be a riveting companion volume to the bestselling Take It Like a Man, but a truly fascinating book in its own right.From the Hardcover edition.
