The whole, complicated, troubled and triumphant story of a man who was once a Greek Cypriot fat boy, became an Eighties pin-up as the driving partner of WHAM!, danced with Princess Diana, perfected the art of designer stubble-culture and, incidentally, became a singer along the way. By painfully and expansively insisting upon his rights as a performer and taking Sony to and through the courts to establish this, Michael not only fought for his own artistic freedom but set an important precedent for every other recording artist in the world. His musical renaissance is a personal and cultural landmark. Always personally evasive, he has endured wilfully mischievous speculations about his private life. In this book the Wapshott brothers go far towards clarifying the importance of his relationship with mercurial South American playboy who died, after which Michael publicly supported AIDS charities. Private grief, coupled with professional frustrations has lead to both silences and scores of unanswered questions about this complicated, feisty and much-misunderstood man.
