Take It Like a Man: The Autobiography of Boy George (Paperback)
Boy George—the iconic leader of the eighties’ pop and new wave band Culture Club—offers a candid look at his life, including his relationship with drummer Jon Moss, his addiction to heroin and difficult road to sobriety, his famous cross-dressing, and his fluctuating fame.
“Where else but in Boy George’s autobiography would there be an index with these sorts of headings: Heroin; Michael, George; Hair, Dyeing...Now that’s entertainment.” — Rolling Stone
“Take it like a Man is a vivid, immensely readable trolley tour of the giddy highs and ghastly lows of George’s addictions to fame, cross-dressing, and drugs, and sex.” — Michael Musto, Village Voice
“Chatty and full of witty observations and characterizations, it is the engaging chronicle of a gentle soul, aware from an early age of what his preferences were and that he was born to perform.…original and insightful.” — Booklist
“Whatever I think of George, I have to praise this book for its candor….A definitive portrait of a modern young pop star.” — Quentin Crisp
“Highly entertaining…A compelling portrait of an individual who, by publicly celebrating his kinks and quirks, parlayed his alienation from mainstream British culture into a highly successful career.” — Publishers Weekly
