Library Journal Review

British neo-soul singer Amy Winehouse died at the age of 27 from alcohol poisoning, an end that added ironic emphasis to her singing her hit song "Rehab." More bitter is the line "My daddy thinks I'm fine," because it's clear, in her father's memoir of his daughter, that he knew she wasn't. The elder Winehouse, a London taxi driver and sometimes vocalist, shares this painful and personal account of his daughter's life and death. He offers a detailed account of Amy's talented, yet brief, life from her prank-loving childhood to her troubled later years. Winehouse also connects Amy's descent into hardcore drug use to her dysfunctional marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil and offers his side of the British tabloid wars he waged with his daughter's in-laws. Verdict Winehouse's account of his daughter's life unfolds into her tragic descent into substance abuse. Her accomplishments take a backseat to her addictions, and the daily ups and downs are both sad and numbing. Amy's numerous fans will appreciate the insight into her life, but as an addiction memoir it's depressing and dispiriting.-Terry Bosky, Palm Beach Cty. Lib.
