This biography explores the making - and undoing - of the self-styled 20th-century boy Marc Bolan. Containing interviews, including friend and DJ John Peel, brother Harry and band members Mickey Finn and Bill Legend, this book provides a portrait of a pop obsessive, a chameleon whose remarkable life also allows us to explore the subterranean worlds he inhabited - Mod, Beatnik, Hippie, Glam and Punk Rock.
