Wait. What happened to Laura? (I've stayed away from her threads for awhile now.)

If she was banned my response is, "Sweet Jesus, it's about time!!!!!" There is no place for her particular treatment of others here either. While she may have had important, valid points to add to the conversation she chose to do so in a way that was clearly unacceptable behavior from a reasonable adult. It's hard for me to feel anything other than pity for people who sabotage themselves when they could easily choose a better approach.
Aaanyway, back on topic...

. Do not post racist or 'hateful' material.
This means no racist/homophobic comments, period. Discussions of racism itself in the proper forum are OK. Making hateful comments, directed at a person or group, may get your account immediately suspended. We are extremely serious about this. prince.org is not a place for racial bigotry or hateful speech.

Oh Geez, here we go again with you. shocked

eek I'll be getting this one. And I'll probably do a book club on it here too!!

I would love a book club about his memoir, Penny! I don't care if the memoir is only 50 pages. I will buy it because the man wrote it himself. Love him and miss him!

I've thought about that one, but Husney isn't being truthful when he said he found Prince. So if he's not truthful with that statement, I don't think he can be trustworthy. JMO

Seriously, I'm not going to buy Husney's book, nor promote it when I know the first thing out of his mouth is a BLATANT lie. If he lies that openly then I don't trust him to tell us the truth where Prince is concerned. Prince fans KNOW who Chris Moon was and what he did, we are not stupid, and Husney should know that.

Your welcome 💜💜 so basically folks shouldn't expect an in depth book, sounds more like a genealogical book
I got the impression that the 50 pages Prince wrote were about his family not that the entire book would be about that. But if he was writing about his family I think that would be very interesting as it’s not something he talked a lot about.

I agree that reading about his family would be very interesting.

.

I don't care what topics he addressed, I want to read what he wrote, and I will buy whatever the publisher releases.

So i just listened to a snippet of the interview from Esther regarding the book and to me his memoir sounds like more of a geneology book than a memoir. She said the book is about "his family"

I wonder what "his family" entails? Does it mean his parents and siblings, Mayte and his son, Manuela, or his "Purple Family" (of bandmates, members of his inner circle, and so forth)?

I'm interested in what was written by him and am hoping the publisher doesn't add any unnecessary "fluff" to it.
