Is that actually called a review? All 18 seconds of it! It sure is a hands-on experience.

Well, in those 18 seconds I could see my hard-cover looks even better Wink
Haven't read it jet though, Stephen King's 11/22/63 has more than 800 pages.....

Hadn't finished reading the book when doing the video. Didnt want to review it so

I guess its an interesting read (apparently Nicks psychiatrist friend has a tape of Nick with 3 versions of Fly, each with a different ending)

but I don't think theres very much "new" on the young man

Is the estate working on a biography Nick? Matt?

Although another Nick Drake book is always welcome I'm not sure this one has much to add to the previous books.

Interesting to read about the author's meetings, interviews and correspondence with Rodney & Molly but it seems to me that most of this, if not all of it, has been published elsewhere.

Main problem I have with the book is where the author imagines what Nick is doing and thinking at certain points in time as if he is there with him ............ clearly nobody can know what Nick was thinking, etc .....

Not as far as I know. They were working on a book in some form (lyrics etc) but I doubt there will be an official biography.

Well, this is one of the previous books. It's just the English translation of a work originally published in 1980. The author did add a little to it, and I had no trouble distinguishing the newer information from the original work. He did a nice job integrating it.

Confused

But essential? probably not
