She has defied categorization for three decades and remained one of our greatest living pop icons
"Madonna: Like an Icon" is a groundbreaking biography that finally solves the mystery at the heart of Madonna's chameleonlike existence. Extensively researched and perceptively written by journalist Lucy O'Brien, it explores the complex personality and legendary drive that has made Madonna the most famous female pop artist of our time. O'Brien draws upon scores of interviews with producers, musicians, collaborators, lovers, and friends--many of whom have never spoken so candidly--to examine Madonna's fascinating life. From her mother's premature death to her dynamic arrival on the New York club scene to her training for "Evita" and beyond, every stage of her life is illuminated.
Unlike any previous Madonna biographer, O'Brien deconstructs the stereotypes that have plagued the star, whether it was being labeled a self-indulgent siren for her book "Sex" or criticized for exploiting her celebrity status to adopt baby David in 2006.
O'Brien provides an incisive portrayal, from Madonna's early days dancing at gay clubs in Detroit to the producers and musicians she both alienated and amazed in her uncompromising quest to seize on the next cultural wave.
