Reviews

"Faster, fuller, and fairer than [Stephen Davis's Bob Marley or Timothy White's Catch a Fire] . . . Salewicz admires Bob Marley deeply without deifying him." --Robert Christgau, Barnes & Noble Review "Chris Salewicz's account of the life of the late, great Robert Nesta Marley contains a raft of never-before published interviews with scores of people who knew the reggae singer. Indeed, Salewicz--a respected journalist whose Joe Strummer biography is also well worth a read--got to know Marley in 1979, and it's this authenticity that sets the book apart from other biographies about the man and the legend. From Bob's humble beginnings in Nine Miles to the years in Kingston and the fame, fortune and untimely death in 1981, Bob Marley: The Untold Story is the definitive account of the man and the myth." --Steve Richards, The Independent "Chris Salewicz, who worked for the NME throughout the 1970s, is well versed in the details of Marley's ascent. What makes his book worth reading, however, is his grasp of Marley's Jamaican background. Salewicz interviewed him in Kingston in 1979 and has clearly spent a lot of time since tracking down friends and relatives, many of whom have not been tapped before . . . [Salewicz] invades and illuminates Marley's privacy more effectively than previous biographers." --Robert Sandall, The Sunday Times (London) "Chris Salewicz's obvious knowledge . . . delivers the bulk of this literary epitaph on the rasta man. Those insights help the tome along at a reggae beat and, to Salewicz's credit, the reportage is evenly balanced between pro and con, making this an enjoyable, if at times disturbing, read . . . Whatever we know of Bob Marley's life will always remain open to conjecture, but at the very least in Salewicz's biography, we can take a step closer to what went on behind closed doors, in between the pleasure and pain. For Marley/ reggae fans, this work will probably stand the test, whereas for the uninitiated, it will serve as a meaty introduction to the 'legend' of Trench Town." --Teri Louise Kelly, The Independent Weekly (Australia) Faster, fuller, and fairer than [Stephen Davis's "Bob Marley "or Timothy White's "Catch a Fire"] . . .
