Candid, compelling, and heartbreaking - a father's story of a talent taken too soon and a legacy that will live on for generations...

On July 23, 2011, Amy Winehouse's family, friends, and fans around the world mourned the tragedy that this remarkable, talented, and extraordinarily generous young woman was now gone. A legion of dedicated fans had lost their idol; a devastated family had lost their Amy. With this difficult news came an outpouring of love and grief from her fans, along with troubling questions about Amy's very public struggles with drugs and alcohol, as people tried to understand how such a soulful singer had been silenced so young.

Now, in this intimate and tender account, her father and confidant, Mitch, offers an inside view of Amy's life as she lived it, putting to rest once and for all the controversies that have long surrounded her. Sifting fact from fiction, he presents a portrait of Amy unlike any other, detailing the events and the people that shaped her youth - from her mischievous childhood to her grandmother's Jazz Age stories, to her father singing Frank Sinatra around the house. Shedding light on Amy's musical coming-of-age, Mitch explores how she honed her distinctive sound, created her unforgettable look, and channeled her own life into hits such as You Know I'm No Good, Rehab, and Back to Black - some of the most memorable and personal pop music in years.

While her beehive hair, larger-than-life voice, and outrageous personality made her famous, her life offstage made her infamous. Here Mitch holds nothing back about Amy's addiction to drugs and alcohol, mixing the painful with the poignant as he describes the realities of her dependencies and the toll they took on the family and friends who refused to give up on her. Revealing the truth about Amy's substance abuse and dispelling many of the tabloid-fueled rumors about her tumultuous marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil, Mitch exposes the years of behind-th...

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andre | 2/12/2014

    " It's really well written and charged with emotion, which makes sense because it's a father writing about his deceased little girl. You can feel his pain as he describes Amy's struggles with her addictions, but at the same time he shows her as a generous person with a big heart who wouldn't hesitate to help those who needed. Definitely a very inspiring book. "

    " Very amateurish writting but a good story. "

    " A very honest look at Amy Winehouse's life through her father's eyes. It was clear that he loved a lot but also clear that she had issues that weren't dealt with properly. I'm sad that she only got 2 albums in during her short life but we learn from both sides of her life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy Morton | 1/17/2014

    " This was an ok book. You can tell that it was not written by a read writer. I didn't find that there was much of extreme interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 11/17/2013

    " This is a sweet, but (inevitably) depressing book. Mitch Winehouse comes across as sincere and well-meaning. The stories, notes and photos from Amy's childhood are lovely. Her saga of addiction is all too predictable, but her music was extraordinary. "

    " Touching and heartfelt. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Josh Boardman | 10/11/2013

    " Dear god, I wouldn't have been able to get through this book if I weren't so obsessed with Amy Winehouse right now. Her dad is an atrocious writer, he's very unperceptive, and I have a feeling he's a bit of a fame-whore. Not a good book, but the only one that's out right now, unfortunately. "

    " very sweet and sad "

    " Amy, My Daughter gave an insightful look into a brilliant mind that we lost way too early. It has truly given me a new insight into er music, and has forever changed the way that I will remember her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Risa Batt | 5/1/2013

    " A father's intimate and poignant testament to his talented and tortured daughter, a forest fire extinguished too soon. Recommended for anyone who recognizes Amy's talented interpretations. "

    " Many have only seen the dark side of Amy Winehouse's drug addiction. Her father chronicles her childhood and career which was tragically cut short by substance abuse. We miss you, Amy, but are happy we met you. "

    " This is an interestimg read about the life of Amy Winehouse. It's sad that her star burned out so quickly, but I'm grateful for the amazing music she left behind on earth. "

    " Words aren't enough to describe this book. God bless you Mitch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchen | 12/7/2012

    " Once I started reading this I couldn't put it down. Amy's father did an amazing job telling her story with what I perceived as great honesty and love. She definitely wasn't a perfect person, but she was an amazing talent that was sadly gone too soon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Clifford | 9/5/2012

    " What a depressing story! It is very difficult to read this story from a parents perspective. Amy had nearly a constant addiction to drugs and later alcohol. She had endless cycles of recovery and relapses. Exhausting. "
