Summary
A comprehensive profile of the pop star whose bizarre behavior has turned him into tabloid fodder uses interviews with family, friends, and acquaintances to clarify the musician's influences and lifestyle.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: You've heard scattered segments of the MICHAEL JACKSON saga, but never in a smooth chronological progression that bonded all the elements together, and managed, en route, to include many of the entertainment industry s most intriguing celebrities: Jackie-O, the Reagans, the Bushes, the Windsors, the aristocracy of America s pop culture, and many of the movie stars of Hollywood's Golden Age. They all opened their doors and sometimes their arms to MICHAEL, the Gloved One, the Thriller.

NO ONE, until now, has ever published a full journalistic overview of a superstar whose fame equals, (and possibly exceeds) that of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, the Queen of England, and the Pope. But here it is, at last: MICHAEL, The Gloved One, the Thriller, the pop star whose antics onstage and off have generated more ink, episodically, than any other living entertainer. Jacko, His Rise and Fall: The Social and Sexual History of Michael Jackson. By Darwin Porter. Hardcover. 542 pages. with approximately 100 photographs and a detailed index listing references to the names of hundreds of celebrities and wannabes who interacted with or reacted to Michael in ways which, at the very least, were highly eccentric. In addition to the names cited a
