Publisher's Summary

In this intimate account of Amy Winehouse's life, music, and untimely death, her father Mitch Winehouse gives readers full access to his daughter’s private life in the midst of her immensely public triumphs and tragedies.

Amy Winehouse needs no introduction. A critically acclaimed recording artist, Amy touched millions with her music during her short but extraordinary life. Following her tragic death in July 2011, Mitch Winehouse wants to tell her incredible story in full.

Amy, My Daughter will take the reader through her mischievous early years, her rise to stardom and to her much publicised struggles with addiction. The book will bring the many layers of her life together - the personal, the private, and the public - to create a fitting tribute to his much loved daughter.

Using exclusive extracts from the diary Mitch kept that details shocking and concerning events in his daughter's life, Amy, My Daughter promises to be the definitive book on an iconic figure who, although tragically taken at an early age, has left a musical legacy that will enthral audiences for many years to come.

All proceeds from the book will be donated to The Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity that Mitch has established in Amy’s name to help children and young adults facing difficulty and adversity in their lives.

    Story
    "Mitch, Amy's Father"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the narrative had been less about Mitch the father and more about Amy the artist. It was painfully obvious that performance anxiety was at the root of the substance abuse YET performance was again and again encouraged and expected. Every time I heard the words "I recorded in my diary" it sounded like an awful, awful cashing in on family celebrity.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mitch Winehouse again?

    Never.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mitch Winehouse and Rupert Farley ?

    Ummm...Amy's mother?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment in how much insight I gained into the psyche of Mitch, but how very little was revealed about Amy.


    Any additional comments?

    God bless each and every one of our children. May their spirits soar...

    "Recommended"

    A great read about an icon who is sadly missed. Where the papers made me believe she was in such distress before she died,you find out the truth about how she was on the road the recovery,a very brave girl who fought with her demons.I believe we all have our date written when we go....she lived life to the full and lives on in her music.x

    "A really courageous story"

    I really was humbled by the courage of this story. Not just by the battle Amy Winehouse had to free herself from addiction but by the loving and dedicated family she had that fought her corner for as long and as hard as they could. It was a an absolute privilege to have such a personal insight into their world

    "Wonderful book"

    Loved this book. He has received bad press lately but is so clear Mitch just loved and adored his daughter and did everything he could to help her. A wonderful tribute to Amy.

    "He changed my view some more"

    This actually brought tears to my heart, coming to terms and moving on all at the same time is the most difficult thing to do. I didn't have much time for Mitch until I heard this but it just shows how a person can change when it comes to dealing with tragedy.

    Story
    "'OUR AMY'"
    Would you listen to Amy, My Daughter again? Why?

    yes, once one gets over their 'prejudices' , mine was 'it's a bit slushy' , but when i thought about it, i thought 'why not?', if only on the basis that she was the target for many hiding their own inadequacies, she was 'easy' inasmuch as so called 'polite society' could 'dis' her without much comeback, i'm thinking of the episode of 'HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU' with CLARE BALDING, who stepped out of satire into downright, and revealing, abuse of Amy's character...so, in short, there were enough out there, particularly amongst the 'media', waiting to have a pop at Amy


    What did you like best about this story?

    the LOVE comes thru once you allow it


    What does Mitch Winehouse and Rupert Farley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    mitch, well his love for his daughter, instances from her childhood, Amy, i think, would have wanted it THIS WAY


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    all of it


    Any additional comments?

    we still don't know the effect Amy will have on the WORLD music scene, where she is loved, i suspect we have seen the passing of one of our best musicians, in the style of one of our other GREATEST, also vilified by the ENGLISH but a LEGEND IN HER OWN TIME as IS Amy...I hope there's more to come from her, and as extra, the cash goes to the Amy Winehouse foundation

    Story
    "Heartfelt father and daughter relationship"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Amy, My Daughter to be better than the print version?

    I woild consider the audio edition better than print version as audio has Amy's Dad on epilogue and prologue.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was cowritten from the perspective of someone closest to the subject. It is a true story and I enjoyed Mitch's very honest account of events.


    What does Mitch Winehouse and Rupert Farley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Rupert Farley is an excellent narator. I often found myself believing this was Mitch's voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it would
