I have been reading a lot of biographies lately, in no particular order here are 5 that have touched me and that i recommend.
1) I'd rather be the devil- Skip James and the blues by Stephen Galt.
2) Black Sun: the brief transit and violent eclipse of Harry Crosby by Geoffrey Wolff.
3) A Magick Life:The Life of Aleister Crowley by Martin Booth.
4) The Ghastly One:The Sex-Gore Netherworld of filmaker Andy Milligan by Jimmy McDonough.
5)The Bloody White Baron by James Palmer.
Actually, i've only just started that last one but it's been interesting so far so i have high hopes for it.
