The story of how Prince’s memoir came to be is in many ways as compelling as the brief portion of his story we get in this audiobook. AudioFile’s Michele Cobb and host Jo Reed discuss this incomplete memoir. Dan Piepenbring’s introduction, which he narrates, tells of how he came to work with Prince on his memoir, and the tragedy of Prince’s death before they truly were able to dig into the writing. Musician Esperanza Spaulding and actress Adepero Oduye narrate Prince’s story, which focuses on his early life and rise to stardom. Fans of the music and the musician will enjoy this exploration of the man behind the music. Published by Random House Audio.
