About the Author

Performer, actress, and musician Grace Jones has been making a name for herself since she left Jamaica as a twelve-year-old in the 1960s. First finding fame as a fashion model in the early 1970s, then as a sensational disco queen during the Studio 54 years, she is as much surrealist as showgirl, as much performance artist as party animal. She has been Bond villain and Warhol confidante, post-modern icon and avant-garde pop star. I'll Never Write My Memoirs is her first book.

Paul Morley is a writer, broadcaster, and cultural critic who has covered music, art, and entertainment since the 1970s. A founding member of the electronic collective Art of Noise and a member of staff at the Royal Academy of Music, he is the author of a number of books about music including the bestselling The Age of Bowie and A Sound Mind: How I Fell in Love with Classical Music and Decided to Rewrite its Entire History. He collaborated with music icon Grace Jones on her memoir, I'll Never Write My Memoirs, and his two most recent books are biographies of Bob Dylan, You Lose Yourself, You Reappear, and Tony Wilson of Factory Records, From Manchester With Love.

Reviews

"[Grace] Jones reflects on a high flying life of celebrity exuberance...In her candid reflections, Jones writes about her lovers...her constant quest for new experiences and willingness to try new things, and the free-flowing social circles of fashionistas, artists, and musicians... [Her] recollections are a passionate reminder of the fabulous, decadent, and manic coupling of life and art."--Kirkus Reviews
"Jones' memoir reads like one long provocation, punctuated by boasts of sexual insatiability, entitled demands, and commanding declarations ("I am my own sugar daddy!"). Even the title of her book courts the contrary. What's not to like?"--Yahoo! (One of the Top Music Books of the Year)
