Amy Winehouse needs no introduction. A critically acclaimed recording artist, Amy touched millions with her music during her short but extraordinary life.
Following her tragic death in July 2011, Mitch Winehouse wants to tell her incredible story in full. “Amy, My Daughter” will take the reader through her mischievous early years, her rise to stardom and to her much publicised struggles with addiction. The book will bring the many layers of her life together – the personal, the private and the public – to create a fitting tribute to his much loved daughter.
Using exclusive extracts from the diary Mitch kept that details shocking and concerning events in his daughters life alongside never-before-seen photos of Amy, taken from the family album, “Amy, My Daughter” promises to be the definitive book on an iconic figure who, although tragically taken at an early age, has left a musical legacy that will enthral audiences for many years to come.
All proceeds from the book will be donated to The Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity that Mitch has established in Amy’s name to help children and young adults facing difficulty and adversity in their lives.

About the author
Mitch Winehouse is a 60 year old black cab driver from North London whose passion for jazz heavily influenced the musical direction of his daughter, Amy. He now devotes his time to raising funds for The Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity established to help young people facing difficulty in their life.
Honest, and from the heart.
There is much discussion of Mr Winehouse being somewhat of an attention seeking grave robber living vicariously through his daughters fame.
This is not true - although he is character that wears his heart on his sleeve for all to see.
"Amy, My Daughter" is a beautiful recollection from a loving Father. It is very funny in parts, and Amy is portrayed as a cheeky little thing without pretention.
It may seem ironic to some, but to me Amy Winehouse is the real girl next door. But with a singing voice from heaven.
Anyone who has family whom have substance abuse issues would relate a lot to the endurance and love contained in this biography. Mitch's writing style is very warm, this sorry story saddened me, however has not left me numb.
It isn't a money spinner. It's a public service announcement.
