An Autobiography

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Marianne Faithfull singer, dope addict and lover of Mick Jagger and other rich and famous people tells us her story, in a frank, revealing autobiography.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 01, 1994 – Early in this engrossing if somewhat disturbing autobiography, rock 'n' roll star Faithful remarks, ``The ony way I could handle being on tour with all these weird people was to treat it as a sociological study.'' This approach aptly describes her dissection of her own life as well. Faithful is more analytical, ironic, self-scrutinizing and literate than most celebrity autobiographers. Writing with Dalton ( Mr. Mojo Risin' ), she depicts with penetrating insight the world of ``free love, psychedelic drugs, fashion, Zen, Nietzsche, tribal trinkets, customized Existentialism, hedonism and rock 'n' roll'' that absorbed her energies from the beginning of her singing career as a teenager in 1960s London. From her tumultuous four-year relationship with Mick Jagger through her descent into junkydom to her ``comeback'' in the late '70s as a punk-rock diva, Faithful embodies rock culture at both its most glamorous and most destructive. A self-described ``victim of cool,'' she is nevertheless a tough (and often astutely feminist) commentator on the underside of the rock 'n' roll dream. Photos not seen by PW. Author tour.

Customer Reviews

Fabulous Faithfull

One of the best rock memoirs I've ever read. Funny and literate, Faithfull makes no excuses for a life lived on the edge.

Wonderfully Written and Insightful

Deliciously written from someone who was smack in the eye of the storm of the 1960’s British music scene, who then crashed and survived her own sojourn in the 1970s/1980s. Dishing on everyone from Donovan to Tom Waits, Faithfull’s encounters with Bob Dylan — and oh yeah that boyfriend of hers in the late 60s — all of it makes this a wonderful and often very funny read.
