The last holiday : a memoir
Part of the CANONS series
Raised by his grandmother in Tennessee, Gil Scott-Heron's journey from humble beginnings to becoming one of the most uncompromising and influential songwriters of his generation is a remarkable one.
In this, his heartfelt, beautifully written and posthumously published memoir, we are given bright insights into the music industry, New York, the civil-rights movement, modern America, governmental hypocrisy, Stevie Wonder and our wider place in the world.
It is also a fitting testament to the generous brilliance of Gil Scott-Heron and to the Spirits that guided him.
