Marianne Faithfull carved her name into the history of rock 'n' roll to chart a career spanning five decades and multiple detours. In Why Marianne Faithfull Matters, Tanya Pearson crafts a feminist account that explains the musician's absence from the male-dominated history of the British Invasion and champions the eclectic late career that confirmed her redemption.

+ Hardback.

Putting memoir on equal footing with biographical history, Pearson writes about Faithfull as an avid fan, recovered addict, and queer musician at a crossroads. She's also a professional historian unafraid to break from the expectations of the discipline if a "titty-centred analysis" or astrology can illuminate the work of her subject. Whether exploring Faithfull's rise to celebrity, her drug addiction and fall from grace as a spurned "muse", or her reinvention as a sober, soulful chanteuse subverting all expectations for an ageing woman in music, Pearson reaffirms the deep connections between the listeners and creators and reveals, in her own particularly way, why Marianne Faithfull matters.
