Description - My Amy: The Life We Shared by Tyler James
Written with a searing honesty and published for the tenth anniversary of Amy Winehouse's death, My Amy is an evocative portrait of unbreakable lifelong friendship - and a devastating study into fame, addiction and self-sabotage.
Only one person knows what really happened to Amy, other than Amy herself. He is Tyler James, Amy's best friend from the age of thirteen. They met at stage school as two insecure outsiders, formed an instant connection and lived together from their late teenage years right up until the day she died, aged just twenty-seven.
Tyler was there by her side through it all. From their carefree early years touring together to the creation of the multiple Grammy-winning Back To Black, which she wrote on their kitchen floor. From her volatile marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil through her escalating addictions, self-harm and eating disorders as the toxic nature of fame warped Amy's reality. For the last three years of her life, Tyler was with her every day when she'd beaten drugs and was close to beating alcoholism too. He also knew better than anyone the real Amy Winehouse who the tabloid-reading public rarely saw - the hilarious, uncompromising force-of-nature busy taking care of everyone else.
We all think we know what happened to Amy Winehouse, but we don't. This definitive insider's story tells us all, finally, the truth.
