The only autobiography by the King of Pop himself. Since Michael Jackson’s untimely death in June, there has been a surge of public adoration and interest in the legendary entertainer. His albums continue to lead record sales – he is quickly becoming the bestselling recording artist of the year. Celebrations of his singularly brilliant career and interest in his intensely private life continue to dominate the media.
ONE AND ONLY AUTOBIOGRAPHY: This is the only book about his life that Michael Jackson ever wrote. He chronicles his humble beginnings in the Midwest, his early days with the Jackson 5, and his unprecedented solo success. Moon Walk details his songwriting process for hits like “Human Nature,” “Beat It,” “Rock With You,” “Billie Jean,” and “We Are the World”; describes how he developed his signature dance style, including the Moon Walk; and opens the door to his very private personal relationships with his family, including sister Janet, and stars like Diana Ross, Berry Gordy, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, and Brooke Shields.
NEW CONTENT: This is a facsimile edition of the original 1988 publication. It will include a new introduction from a well-known figure in the entertainment industry who was close to Michael and an afterword from Publisher Shaye Areheart who was, along with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Michael’s original editor at Doubleday.
