This collection of essays, what-ifs and tidbits contains everything writer and critic Scott Woods has publicly written and published about Prince, as well as new material written specifically for this edition. A fun, sometimes biting history with Prince from a super-fan’s perspective, Prince and Little Weird Black Boy Gods is not so much a reference as a unique look at his career, the meaning of his music, and an official weighing in on numerous long-standing Prince debates, such as who was greater, Prince or Michael Jackson; how many times did Prince launch a successful comeback, and which song off of every album you should listen to. This version contains new essays and updated info, and promises to be an engaging, witty and fitting memorial for one of the greatest artists music has ever produced.
"This book is a bit of a Tardis. It's bigger on the inside than the outside. Or maybe a bag of holding. And it seems to have different material every time I open it. Maybe it's a bit of a Rorschach test showing me what I'm thinking about. I say this having read the ebook version, having read any of the new essays that had been released online, having proofread one of the new ones, having heard one of them at a couple of readings, having breathed out through my nose in that annoying way I have and said directly to the author of the book in question, "What haven't I read already?" Plenty, my friends. There's plenty more to find." -Author/Poet Louise Robertson
