Unless there were additional pages to the original manuscript and/or voice recordings waiting to be transcribed, the writer will have to pad the book with material from other sources so it may turn out to be more of a biography.


[Edited 4/11/18 8:13am]




Right and more of stuff we've already seen and heard. That's going to have to be a hard, "No!" from me.



yeah, we've all been desperate to hear of Prince's journey in his own words...


Your going to be disappointed with this book because with the description Esther has given us in that Variety.com interview is that the book is about "Family" not really an in-depth view of the man himself

Just 2 note is that she already read the book

The big question is why did he stop at the superbowl? I think we can read between the lines.

I do not see anything wrong with that; Springsteen ended his autobiography at the Superbowl...

Prince did mention at the time that he would write another book detailing the remaining years if the first one was popular enough.

The Superbowl is a good universally known high point to conclude the first book on. However, I don't think Prince felt his career 'ended' there, particularly as his record breaking 21 Nights in London was yet to come.

I wasn't aware that he had said that.Thanks.I mentioned in another post that I would have thought that he would have wanted to cover 21 Nites but I guess that was for the next book since that was the next big thing after the Super Bowl in '07.

I think it's the 'coming soon' bit that's significant.

There was that kurt cobain book that came out recently compiling his sketches, journal entries etc. That would be sort of interesting if they could add stuff like that to this book -- not necessarily journal entries, but Prince was known to sketch and draw. Or like pages from scripts that he hand-annotated, contact sheets he edited -- basically things in his own hand. Could be interesting.



Seen that book. Fascinating insight in his world.
