Description - Neil Diamond by Laura Jackson

Neil Diamond has been responsible for writing some of the most memorable songs in pop music history and he has sold in excess of 120 million albums. After years of anonymity in Tin Pan Alley churning out hits for other artistes, Neil Diamond burst onto the scene in his own right in 1969 with 'Sweet Caroline' and has continues to reign as one of the Top 5 most successful solo artistes in pop music. However, superstardom has come at a personal cost - he is a star who has suffered periods of crippling self doubt. He is an intriguing blend of contradictions - a massively charismatic dazzling live performer, yet deeply introspective off stage. In this fascinating portrait, his life, his music and his passions are explored from his childhood struggle to get out of Brooklyn, through five decades of global stardom, to the present day. Neil Diamond: The Biography provides a definitive insight into one of the most enduring, creative, and prolific singer-songwriters of his generation.
