From the world's most controversial rock star comes his shocking, confessional and revealing life story. In "The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, " Marilyn Manson candidly and vividly recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered celebrity in America.A cross-dressing grandfather, a sexually abusive neighbor, a brainwashing faith healer and a schoolteacher searching for satanic messages in rock songs are only a few of the characters who populate his bizarre childhood.From backstage to jail cells, from recording studios to emergency rooms, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, "The Long Hard Road Out of Hell" chronicles Manson's rise to fame at the price of his humanity and his descent through the circles of Dante's "Inferno": Lust, Violence and Treachery.His story is illustrated with dozens of previously unpublished photographs, and it features a behind-the-scenes account of his headline-grabbing Dead to the World Tour -- vilified, banned and protested by politicans, preachers and parents alike. In his 29 years, Manson has experienced more than most people have -- or would want to -- in a lifetime.For info on the tour click hereshow more

Review quote

"By turns moving, funny, appalling, and disturbing...There has never been anything like it."-- "Rolling Stone""Unimaginably perverse and demented."-- "Newsweek""Fascinating, sleazy account of his coming of age and ascent into damnation."-- "Us""Makes Madonna's infamous "Sex" seem downright wholesome by comparison."-- "Elle""If the Marquis De Sade had a son in a hard-rock band who wrote a book, this would be the book."-- "Christian Science Monitor""Repulsive...well-written and uncommonly addictive."-- "Chicago Sun-Times""Nothing short of captivating in all its intentional, over-the-top bad taste."-- "Edge""Amusing...lots of sex, bondage, drugs, intrigue, and mental decay."-- "Village Voice""Clipped, colorful prose that fits the author's larger-than-life personality like a pair of rubber shorts."-- "Paper"show more
