‘Nilsson: The Life of a Singer-Songwriter’ Named Book Of The Week By BBC Radio 4

Alyn Shipton’s biography of Harry Nilsson, Nilsson: The Life of a Singer-Songwriter, is BBC Radio 4′s Book of the Week! Be sure to tune in to Episode 1 from the book on Monday, August 26 at BBC.co.uk.

I have long been intrigued by Nilsson, and his creative urge. He produced over fourteen albums at the height of his career, all of which pushed the boundaries of studio craft and invention. Having the chance to delve into his family papers and write his biography was a wonderful experience for any writer. It is a privilege to tell the story of this remarkable singer and songwriter for the first time, and to share it with BBC Radio 4 listeners.
