    Insightful, honest

    Biographies about complex characters are never easy to write. There is always a fear that you'll alienate your audience who only want to hear the most positive tidbits about people they admire. The author is very careful to humanize Reed without attacking him and the perspective on the development of his talent musically, sheds insight into his triumphs and frustrations. We also come to realize why an artist who had very little commercial success relatively , had such a huge impact , specifically on people who never fit into the mainstream but never had the power to voice their frustrations . It was refreshing to learn about his sense of humor, his occasional humility, and his devotion to some people around him. The quintessential book for fans of both Lou Reed andthe city of New York, a perfect morning companion to that first cup of coffee and croissant after a difficult night.
