Product description


"O'Brien's book is a sensitive and sometimes poignant biography... Thankfully, her biographer has the gentleness of touch to celebrate this brief but vibrant life without sentimentalising it" (Guardian) --Guardian

"This book is a thoroughly good read that urges you to re-investigate the woman's causes, as well as her music" (Record Collector)" --Record Collector

Bought for my wife who normally reads anything and loves Kirsty but she couldn't be bothered to finish this. It's not a biography. Just a glorified list of names really. Probably ok for Lovvies.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those that loved her music 1 Jan. 2016
By Jim Libby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is probably of interest only to those that have heard Kirsty and love her music. For those that do, it is a great book. It does a nice job talking about her personal life and her career.
