About Harvey's guest:
Today’s guest, James Gavin, is a highly respected celebrity biographer and award-winning journalist whose meticulous research, attention to detail, and exceptional, insightful storytelling, make his books fascinating, compelling and memorable.
His insightful books about some of the iconic artists in the world of popular music include, “Intimate Nights: The Golden Age of New York Cabaret”, “Deep in a Dream: The Long Night of Chet Baker”, “Stormy Weather: The Life of Lena Horne”, and “Is That All There Is: The Strange Life of Peggy Lee”.
And now, he’s released his much-anticipated 5th book entitled, “George Michael: A Life”, a poignant and eye-opening biography, which has been hailed as the definitive account of the tumultuous, triumphant and yet tragic life story of one of pop music’s most troubled and enigmatic superstars.
Behind the carefully crafted public image of a sexy, straight stud – a modern-day Elvis – there was a frightened, lonely, insecure gay man who felt like a fraud. People Magazine chose this book as one of its top 10 summer reads. And the New York Times called it " an engrossing, thorough and well-rounded view of George Michael’s artistry and personal chaos”.
In addition to his books, our guest has written dozens of New York Times feature articles, and he’s received 2 ASCAP Awards for excellence in music journalism, AND a Grammy nomination.
