The Life and Career of Lou Reed

The Life and Career of Lou Reed: Waiting for the Man


In this revised edition of the acclaimed biography, the author provides a rich and sweeping account of Lou Reed’s four-decade career. As the cool, defiant narrator of subcultures, Reed’s implacable mystique was undeniable, from his early days as Andy Warhol’s sexually ambivalent protégé performing with the Velvet Underground to his gradual reinvention as one of the most original musicians of his day. In this book, Jeremy Reed (no relation) offers an insightful and well-written narrative worthy of his famously erudite subject.
