Written with Harry's cooperation, 'Platinum Blonde' celebrates the life of the original rock goddess as boldly as she's lived it. With her unapologetic sexuality and aggressive pop, Harry has remained a lasting icon of cool, synonymous with New York City attitude and the intersecting urban worlds of punk, rock, rap, art, film and fashion.
What emerges from this quirky volume – filled with new insights from Harry herself, her friends, fans and contemporaries – is a portrait of an artist. Like a prism, Harry's life reflects the vitality of downtown New York from the late-60s to the present, exposes the male-dominated music industry and laughs at the twisted nature of celebrity obsession.
'Platinum Blonde' is the first book dedicated solely to Harry – a great beauty, a maverick musician and a truly unconventional pop star.
