This is a biography of Terence Trent d'Arby, who, though surrounded by a mass of publicity even before the release of his first record, has remained an enigmatic figure. Thwarted by his reluctance to be interviewed, the media has concentrated on a few bare facts about his life in the USA before he moved to Europe and various speculation. Daisann McLane, however, has spoken to him about his American background, his family and his upbringing in his father's Pentecostal church. She has had access to his family and friends and reveals his childhood in Florida, his success as a Golden Gloves champion boxer, his desertion from the US Army as well as the development of his phenomenal musical career. The author is a regular contributor to "Rolling Stone" and "Village Voice" magazines and is well known as Lady Complainer, the calypso singer.show more
