Fever: The Life and Music of Miss Peggy Lee
Richmond, Peter
Aurum Press UK 2006 
 Hardcover ex-Merton (UK) lib, usual stamps, borrowers' ticket page removed (1st page). 44p crisp pp & 900g packed to post. An enthralling account of a charismatic artist moving through the greatest, most glamorous era of American music. GQ contributing editor Richmond gives the great singer-composer her due. Perhaps because Peggy Lee (1920-2002) sang with deceptive ease, her artistry has received less critical attention than that of such peers as Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. Her biographer here rights that wrong. Richmond finds Lee's life and talent taking root in pain; she grew up in North Dakota during the Depression under stress from an alcoholic father and a physically and verbally abusive stepmother. To escape, Lee turned to singing. In strong scenes that evoke America's golden age of popular song, the author traces her career.  Good/Very Good

Amy Winehouse The Biography
Newkey-Burden, Chas
John Blake UK 2008 
 Hardcover 211 crisp pp plus a discography, book just a whisker under 500g for post. This remarkable biography traces the life of the tattooed wonder from her childhood pranks in north London through her days at the Sylvia Young Theatre School and her time spent working with pop impresario Simon Fuller. An indisputable musical icon and controversial celebrity figure, Amy Winehouse’s unique blend of jazz, pop, and soul singing and songwriting have brought her a host of awards—including two prestigious Ivor Novellos and five Grammys - as well as an army of committed fans who adore her rich voice and painfully honest lyrics. review >>> This biography is fluently written. It was published in 2008, which sometimes leads to phrases that are painful to read in 2012. The author is clearly smitten with Amy Winehouse and barely manages to hide that. For an author of a biography, he's not neutral enough for me, but his bias is of the adorable kind.  Excellent/Excellent
