Combining interviews with Nina Simone's friends and colleagues with information from albums and Simone's autobiography, this in-depth biography portrays the racial discrimination, rejection, and abandonment Simone experienced, all of which left the legendary musician feeling betrayed and lonely. Nina Simone was one of jazz's greatest performers, but also a complex and troubled woman who verbally assaulted her audiences, reputedly had a loveless upbringing, suffered from mental illness, and fell victim to cutthroat music industry players. This first full-length biography of Simone is highly recommended for jazz music lovers as well as those interested in the civil rights movement. "Combinando entrevistas con amigos y colegas de Nina Simone e informacion de albumes y de la autobiografia de Simone, esta exhaustiva biografia retrata la discriminacion racial, el rechazo y el abandono experimentado por Simone, todo lo cual dejo a la artista legendaria sintiendose traicionada y sola. Nina Simone fue una de las mejores artistas del jazz, pero tambien una mujer compleja y turbada quien atacaba verbalmente a sus audiencias, quien segun se dice tuvo una crianza carente de carino, quien sufria de una enfermedad mental y quien fue victima de personajes despiadados en la industria musical. Esta primera biografia completa de Simone es recomendada para los amantes del jazz al igual que para aquellos interesados en el movimiento de los derechos civiles."
