First ever portrait of iconic pop star, written with Deborah Harry's co-operation. Written with Deborah Harry's co-operation Platinum Blonde is the first portrait of the original Rock Goddess. With her unapologetic sexuality and perfectly aggressive pop, Ms Harry has remained a lasting icon of cool, synonymous with New York City attitude and the intersecting worlds of punk, rock, rap, art, film and fashion. Though a mainstream pop star, Deborah was never predictable. Her punk sensibilities, her roots in bohemian, alternative culture and her friendships with controversial artists such as William Burroughs and Andy Warhol set her apart from the archeypal sex symbol and pin-up girl. As bold and uncensored as the women herself, this quirky, broad sweeping biography, filled with new insights from Deborah, her friends, family and peers, is seeped in the vitality of down town New York and spiked with anecdotes of a maverick musician at large in a world of fame.
