Finally – a chance for American listeners to get a look into the life of Serge Gainsbourg – served up here in a massive biography on one of the greatest singer/songwriters of the 20th Century! The book is way more than we could have hoped for – not a sensational fluff piece on Serge, as has been written in the past overseas – but a really thoughtful, well-researched culled from extensive interviews with a huge number of Gainsbourg's contemporaries! The book features loads of lyrical translations, a few black and white photos, and most importantly, almost 600 pages of great biographical details.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
