Karma: My Autobiography (Hardback)Boy George (author)
As candid, outrageous and wickedly funny as its author, Karma tells the fascinating story of Boy George and his iconic musical career from the heyday of Culture Club to his late-career renaissance.
Karma is the definitive autobiography from music icon, Boy George - the Grammy, Brit and Ivor Novello award-winning lead singer of 80s pop/reggae band, Culture Club, since its inception in 1981.Boy George has led a colourful life, to say the least, with his androgynous look making him the poster boy of a counter culture and of the glam rock generation, becoming a LGBTQ+ icon along the way. Controversial and unapologetic, he was part of the New Romantic movement that started in the late 1970s/early 80s, birthing other stars like Marilyn and Steve Strange who were equally influenced by glam rock pioneers like David Bowie and Marc Bolan. The band itself had incredible success and remain together to this day, through the ups and downs of the ensuing decades.
Now, Boy George is telling his story in full for the very first time - from the early days of his music career in the 70s and 80s, through the hedonism of the 80s and 90s, through to the resurgence he's enjoying in present-day, Karma promises to be an illuminating read that holds no punches and lifts the lid on Boy George's crazy transatlantic life and career through the decades.
