Dig If You Will The Picture

Ben Greenman

Dig If You Will The Picture is a portrait of The Artist who will be remembered by many as the most seductive and enigmatic pop star of his generation. A year after Prince’s death at the age of 57, acclaimed writer Ben Greenman brilliantly anatomizes the star’s dramatic career and an aesthetic that at times seemed otherworldly.

In thematically structured chapters that blend critical consideration of Prince’s art with the author’s personal connection to the music, this is a fitting memorial to a legendary performer: monumental, yet deeply intimate. Drawing on over 40 studio albums, a repertoire of 2,000 plus live shows, and close analysis of the unreleased highlights of the Vault, Dig If You Will the Picture is the definitive book on Prince’s work.
