Originally written in Danish in 1980, Pink Moon was the first biography of Nick Drake, and remains the only one to include exclusive interviews with the singer's parents, Rodney and Molly Drake. In this new, significantly updated edition, available in English for the first time, author and poet Gorm Henrik Rasmussen reveals more from his visits to the Drakes in their home Far Leys - the first, just five years after the death of their troubled son. Rasmussen includes new interviews with Nick's friends and collaborators plus extracts taken from his eight-year correspondence with the Drakes, and from telephone conversations he had with Rodney every month over four years. Full of intimate detail about the last three years of Nick's life spent at his childhood home, Pink Moon - A Story about Nick Drake is a personal, original, and moving retelling of the life, death, and posthumous rise of a poet and guitarist who was strangely unsuited for his own time, and is more popular now than he ever was in life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...constructs the story of Drake's life with insights from those who knew him best... Rasmussen writes elegantly about the music, while his detailed account of the last years of Drake's life are sensitively handled. By the end of this book, Rasmussen has breathed new life into his subject and his music." source: www.mojo4music.com -- Mark Blake.
'Gorm tells the story with great understanding of Nick and his art. He must be credited with writing the first book about Nick, and possibly the best one too. Like Nick's own works, it was unappreciated for many years.. now that its truth and magic are revealed, it deserves to find a much wider audience and will undoubtedly bring satisfaction to all those who wish to know the real Nick Drake a little better.' -- Jason Creed. * Pynk Moon fanzine *
'A story in which straight biographical bits are interwoven with skillfully composed, extrapolated scenes ... fans will find it a great companion book to Drake's music, and rock lovers will enjoy the author's serious, personal attempt to get intimate with his icon.' Source: www.reviews.libraryjournal.com/2012/03/collection-development/books-for-dudes/books-for-dudes/ -- Douglas Lord.
