From the Publisher
Jermaine Jackson-older than Michael by four years-offers a keenly
observed memoir tracing his brother's life starting from their
shared childhood and extending through the Jackson 5 years,
Michael's phenomenal solo career, his loves, his suffering, and his
tragic end. It is a sophisticated, no-holds-barred examination of
the man, aimed at fostering a true and final understanding of who
he was, why he was, and what shaped him.
Jermaine knows the real Michael as only a brother can. In this raw,
honest, and poignant account, he reveals Michael the private
person, not Michael "the King of Pop."
Jermaine doesn't flinch from tackling the tough issues: the torrid
press, the scandals, the allegations, the court cases, the internal
politics, the ill-fated This Is It tour, and disturbing
developments in the days leading up to Michael's death. But where
previous works have presented only thin versions of a media
construct, he provides a rare glimpse into the complex heart, mind,
and soul of a brilliant but sometimes troubled entertainer. As a
witness to history on the inside, Jermaine is the only person
qualified to deliver the real Michael and reveal what made him
tick, his private opinions, and unseen emotions through the most
headline-making episodes of his life.
Filled with keen insight, rich in anecdotes and behind-the-scenes
detail, You Are Not Alone is the book for any true Michael
Jackson fan and for anyone trying to make sense of the artist whose
death was so premature.
