However, I feel that it is almost immpossible for his family to give an accurate account of his life, when, by their own admission, they did not see him for up to ten months of each year for the last fifteen years of his life. The book also raises numerous questions about his estate, which I feel were not fully answered by the author. Despite this, I did enjoy the book and found it to throughly readable, and a must for any fan wanting to discover 'The Real Michael Hutchence'.
There's a distinct change of direction a couple of chapters into the book, as it becomes an account filled with both authors opinions on almost everyone in Michael's life, none of whom are portrayed in a very positive light. The book is subtitled 'The Real Michael Hutchence' even though both women admit to not see very much of Michael during his 17 years with INXS, therefore I would question the validity of the claim.
In spite of all this there are reavealing, enjoyable chapters in this book about an ordinary man who lived an extraordinary life.
In the years since, Hutchence is still not at peace: a delayed posthumous release of a solo album; his estate still in dispute; his only child, orphaned recently, lives with the man who Michael feared would take her. And many questions still remain prompting the creation of numerous television specials, magazines, websites, and books.
A fourth book comes on the eve of the third anniversary of Hutchence's passing. Not yet released in America, JUST A MAN has sparked a heated debate amongst "INXSaries", the loyal fans of Hutchence's band. Written by the late singer's sister and mother, Tina Hutchence and Patricia Glassop pay tribute to and set the record straight in a journey spanning time zones and continents. Subtitled "The Real Michael Hutchence", it is the most revealing, fully-dimensional portrait of an "ordinary man living an extraordinary life."
From its opening, it is clear that this is an account like no other previously released. The book begins at one of the most tragic moments in a person's life as both daughter and mother recount receiving the news regarding their loved one. Hutchence and Glassop, each represented by a distinguished font, recount and corroborate stories from their own viewpoints in their own words.Read more ›
His mum clearly had a close relationship with Michael and misses him terribly and I do feel she and Tina Hutchence blame Paula for his death. This book is a fascinating read although I imagine it will be terribly painful for Tiger to read in later life. I can't honestly believe that they wrote this book while Paula was still alive! Some awful things are written about Paula and I imagine Paula was mortified when she read it as she also loved Michael very much and he was the father of her child.
I definitely recommend this book, it contains amazing photos of Michael's life.
