Staff Reviews


On the heels of Anthony DeCurtis’ essential LOU REED: A LIFE (2017) comes this significantly dishier biography, full of fleshed-out tales previously only heard in passing. Despite the title, this book too goes far beyond Reed’s years with The Velvets. Reed’s erudite crudity is on constant display throughout, and as always, both repellent and entertaining, by turns generous and stingy, prissy and guttural, he is always impossible to explain rationally. Much detail in this book!
