Synopsis:

Fully Revised and Updated

MADONNA: LIKE AN ICON is a groundbreaking biography finally solves the mystery at the heart of her chameleon-like existence. Extensively researched and perceptively written by journalist Lucy O’Brien, it explores the complex personality and legendary drive that has made Madonna the most famous female pop artist of our time. O’Brien draws upon scores of interviews with producers, musicians, collaborators, lovers, and friends - many of whom have never spoken so candidly - to examine Madonna’s fascinating life. From her mother’s premature death to her dynamic arrival on the New York club scene to her training for Evita and beyond, every stage of her life is illuminated.
