About the Author

Simon Morrison teaches music history at Princeton University.


"Written with respect and admiration, Mirror in the Sky analyzes Stevie Nicks's music with care, noting how it expressed the sentiments of a generation."-- "Foreword Reviews"
"Morrison's extensively researched biography does not shy away from Nicks's battles with addiction and emphasizes how as a woman musician, she has had to work harder and be better than the men around her. Nicks fans will appreciate Morrison's care in the details of her songwriting and the song production."-- "Library Journal"
"[Morrison's] narrative centers on Stevie's remarkable gifts as a songwriter, musical artist, and visionary, which have been historically downplayed by journalists and even her musical partners. Delving into the 'fandom, ' Mirror in the Sky is refreshingly different from past books on Stevie Nicks."-- "Stevie Nicks info site"
"There are lots of music biographies out there, but few are as in-depth, intelligently written, and expertly researched as Mirror in the Sky. Penned by Simon Morrison, the book extends beyond a simple recap of the events, as it analyzes the songwriting craft of Nicks, places her within a greater artistic context of American folk and country, and dives deep into the archives to produce the most accurate account possible."-- "Consequence Sound"
[E]nlightening . . . I enjoyed reading Mirror in the Sky . . . Most important, Morrison sent me back to Nicks's catalogue, including gems I'd overlooked or missed."-- "Air Mail"
