Van Morrison is an enigma. The legendary rock star who wrote and recorded such influential albums as Astral Weeks and Moondance and has mesmerised millions live is also a reclusive and troubled man who'll do anything to avoid publicity.
Through interviews with friends, through the music itself and through painstaking research, Clinton Heylin reveals for the first time the tensions in Morrison's life. From a Belfast childhood and marriage break up to the recording of classic songs and albums, this is Van Morrison laid bare.
