About the Author:

Janis Winehouse was born in New York but grew up mainly in London. While bringing up her son, Alex, and daughter, Amy, she completed two degrees―an Open University degree in science, followed by a bachelor of pharmacy at the University of London. Janis raised Amy on the music of Carole King and James Taylor, and supported her throughout her musical career. In 2003, Janis was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and was forced to take early retirement in 2009. She now devotes her time to raising money for the Amy Winehouse Foundation and the MS Society. She lives in north London with her husband, Richard, and three cats: Gizzy, Moggy, and Minty.

Review:

“Poignant.” ―The Independent (UK)

“An authentic, poignant, and gut-wrenchingly sad tale . . . An insightful, honest, and often uplifting account of a life cut tragically short.” ―Heat (UK)

“Deeply personal . . . Insightful, offering rare glimpses behind the maelstrom of Amy’s public life.” ―The Jewish Chronicle (UK)

“We think we know her: just another rock star whose meteoric rise to the top led to a premature and deadly fall. But Winehouse also tells the other side of her daughter’s story. ... Winehouse captures her daughter’s contradictory personality (“she feared success, but she feared being ignored even more”), ultimately presenting a thoughtful, personal back story of a complicated person behind the beehive and eyeliner.” ―Booklist

"Fans who want to get to know the troubled artist a little better will find this a fond remembrance." ―Publishers Weekly

Book Description Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Arguably the most gifted artist of her generation, Amy Winehouse died tragically young, aged just 27. With a worldwide fanbase and millions of record sales to her name, she should have had the world at her feet. Instead, in the years prior to her passing, she battled with addictions and was often the subject of lurid tabloid headlines. But who was the real Amy? Amy s mother, Janis, knew her in a way that no-one else did. In this warm, poignant and, at times, heartbreaking memoir, she reveals the full story of the daughter she loved. As the world watched the rise of a superstar, then the freefall of an addict to her untimely death, Janis simply saw her Amy, the girl she d given birth to in 1983; the girl she d raised and stood by despite her unruly behaviour; the girl whose body she was forced to identify two days after her death - and the girl she s grieved for every day since. Packed with exclusive material that has never been seen before, such as extracts from Amy s teenage diaries, photos and notes, Loving Amy offers a new and intimate perspective on the life and death of the phenomenon that is Amy Winehouse.
