In her stunning first book, Margo Jefferson gives us the incontrovertible lowdown on call-him-what-you-wish; she offers a powerful reckoning with a quintessential, richly allusive signifier of American society and popular culture.

Michael Jackson: provocateur, icon, enigma. Who was he really? And how does his spectacular rise, his catastrophic fall, reflect upon those who made him; those who broke him; and those who loved him? Almost ten years on from Jackson's untimely death, here is Margo Jefferson's definitive and dazzling dissection of the King of Pop: a man admired for his music, his flair, his performances; and censured for his skin, his erratic behaviour and, in his final years, for his relationships with children.

'Jefferson sees nuances that white writers invariably miss ... Nor can you fail to be moved by her descriptions of the ultra-perfectionist environment that Jackson's father created.'
The Times

'[Jefferson's] tantalisingly sharp mind [turns] sympathy into insight.'
Metro

'A startlingly forthright consideration of what drove Jackson then and what drives our thinking of him now.'
Esquire
