Table of Contents

Interview - Prince's highly readable discussion with art critic Jeff Rian ranges in its subject matter from rock 'n' roll, to folk art, to criminals and celebrities, as well as his experiences and history as an artist. - Survey - Critic Rosetta Brooks examines the variety in Prince's art through two key themes: the notion of artistic 'authenticity' and the artist's construction of his own beguiling personality. - Focus - Renowned photography critic Luc Sante takes a close look at one of Prince's best-known and most disturbing series, Girlfriends, a confounding combination of sexiness and sexism. - Artist's Choice - the lyrics from Fallen for You, a 1992 pop song by singer/songwriter Shiela Nicholls ('I think about you all the time/Walking around the Guggenheim') reflect both the romantic and the unconventional nature of Prince's own work. - Artist's Writings - Autobiography, fiction, observations and confessions make up the selection of Prince's signature writing style, alongside key interviews with and by the artist since 1967. - Chronology and Bibliography
