This illustrated biography follows the highs and lows of Kylie Minogue's extraordinary showbiz career. Starting with her suburban childhood in Melbourne, Australia, it recounts her years as a teenage TV star culminating in the role of feisty mechanic Charlene Mitchell, that propelled her to early fame in Neighbours. It then examines her ascent to the top of the pop charts via 1980s hit machine Stock, Aitkin and Waterman, her subsequent reclamation of her artistic integrity, her "indie" years and her return to classic disco pop. The book also covers her romantic relationships with fellow pop/soap star Jason Donovan, the late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence and model James Gooding. Featuring many quotes from Kylie herself on love, life, fame and the joys of hotpants, this book brings her fans up-to-date on the most recent developments in her life, her tours, her many awards and her future plans.
