Description
Information
Transformer is the only complete and comprehensive telling of the Lou Reed story, in his own words.

Legendary songwriter and guitarist Lou Reed passed away in October 2013. Victor Bockris has now updated his original biography, and in the wake of Reed's death has secured interviews with his widow Laurie Anderson.
Transformer is the only biography Reed himself ever contributed to in his lifetime, and journalists requesting an interview were first asked to read this book in preparation.

The book opens with the teenage electroshock treatments that dominated Reed's memories of childhood, and never stops revealing layer after layer of this complex and often anguished man and artist.

Including previously unseen photographs and collaborators from Reed's innermost circle such as Andy Warhol and David Bowie, Transformer is as captivating and vivid a read as befits a music master.
