Moby was born in Harlem in 1965. He is a singer-songwriter, musician, DJ and photographer. The first volume of his memoirs, Porcelain, was published in 2016.
"Charming and funny and very, very revealing."
--John Waters, filmmaker and author of Mr. Know-It-All
"Just three years after his first memoir, Porcelain, Moby is back with an even more revealing book, tracing his dark journey through fame. Tales about David Bowie, Madonna and ex-flames Natalie Portman and Christina Ricci abound."
" Moby is most unsparing with himself. He has no axes to grind, but he's brutal when characterizing his narcissistic-rocker phase.... His wit is sharp but light, and the memoir isn't stuffed with references to obscure things no one's ever heard of."
"[THEN IT FELL APART includes] stories that are humorous, heartfelt, heartbreaking, and above all else, revealing.... The level of honesty Moby poured into each page fills the book with memorable moments from cover to cover."
--Consequence of Sound
"A celebrity-filled chronicle of the debauchery and desperation that led to [Moby's sobriety.]"
--New York Post
"A wildly entertaining journey through the life of a musician whose unassuming exterior belies a wildness to rival any rock 'n roll memoir you've ever read."
--LA Daily News
"Can't put it down. Honest, heartbreaking and really funny."
-- Adam McKay, co-writer of Anchorman, Talledega Nights and founder of the website Funny or Die
"Filled with fascinating characters and memorable meetings with celebrities and politicians."
-- Library Journal
"Moby's writing shines brightest in descriptions of the music he loves. A salacious cautionary tale as well as a nostalgic trip through a memorable time in music."
"This well-written memoir of a man's search for contentment astutely reveals the sharp rises and the steep descents of fame."
Reviews for Porcelain "Riveting."--Rolling Stone
"Rock memoirs rarely live up to expectations, but... Porcelain is an exception. It ranks with Kim Gordon's Girl in a Band and a handful of others in recent years as a particularly incisive look at not just a life in music, but at the cultural and social circumstances that helped shape it. It is by turns self-deprecating, hilarious and moving."--Chicago Tribune
