Praise for "What Happened, Miss Simone?" and Nina Simone
Alan Light has written an electrifying, humane, and dimensional biography of one of my favorite artists in the entire world. I learned so much about a woman I admire, the woman whose fiery piano and voice is a powerful reminder of what artists are meant to do! "What Happened, Miss Simone?" captures how unique and real she was on every page.

Nina Simone s music helped us to navigate the contradictions that propelled the black struggle forward Herphenomenal voice beckoned us toward the battle to come.
Angela Davis
" What Happened, MissSimone?"is theengaging biography of the troubled soul heroine... As Light shows, her intensity fueled music that reflected and transformed the volatile America of her times.
"Rolling Stone"
[Nina Simone's] willingness to speak her mind shines out of every page of Alan Light's biography.
"The Times "(UK)
A probing account of Simone s inner struggles...Far from detracting from her civil rights heroism, it makes that achievement all the more astonishing.
"The New York Review of Books
" Simone was a genius. Hertriumphs and troubles share the stage in Light's pitch-perfect biography, "What Happened, Miss Simone?." "
"Elle
"" Cleareyed and well-balanced, respectful rather than worshipful. ""

Reseña del editor:

Inspired by the Academy Award-nominated Netflix documentary "What Happened, Miss Simone?," an intimate and vivid look at the legendary life of Nina Simone, the classically trained pianist who evolved into a chart-topping chanteuse and committed civil rights activist.
From music journalist and former "Spin" and "Vibe" editor-in-chief Alan Light comes a biography of incandescent soul singer and Black Power icon Nina Simone, one of the most influential, provocative, and least understood artists of our time. Drawn from a trove of rare archival footage, audio recordings and interviews (including Simone's remarkable private diaries), this nuanced examination of Nina Simone s life highlights her musical inventiveness and unwavering quest for equality, while laying bare the personal demons that plagued her from the time of her Jim Crow childhood in North Carolina to her self-imposed exile in Liberia and Paris later in life.
Harnessing the singular voice of Miss Simone herself and incorporating candid reflections from those who knew her best, including her only daughter, Lightbrings us face to face with a legend, examining the very public persona and very private struggles of one of our greatest artists."

Descripción Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. An intimate and vivid look inside Nina Simone's legendary life as a fiery singer, demanding mother, and tirelessly committed civil rights activist, told using previously buried material from the Netflix/Radical Media documentaryWhat Happened, Miss Simone? From music journalist and former Spin and Vibe editor-in-chief Alan Light comes a biography of incandescent soul icon and activist Nina Simone, drawn from a trove of rare archival materials, including Simone's remarkable private diaries, published alongside Radical Media's much buzzed-about documentary of the same name, which debuted to great acclaim at Sundance in January 2015 and will premiere on Netflix this summer. What Happened, Miss Simone? explores the many facets of this complicated and gifted woman, excavating her lifelong passion for classical music and painful rejection from that field, along with her soaring success as a soul singer and the stresses put upon her as an African American pushing against the tide of racial discrimination in civil rights battles. Harnessing the singular voice of Miss Simone herself through her private correspondence and incorporating candid reflections from those who knew her best, including her only daughter, Light brings us face to face with a legend, examining the very public persona and very private struggles of one of our greatest artists.
