The Rise of Prince: 1958-1988 gives you a front–row seat to the dramatic events of iconic artist Prince Rogers Nelson’s dazzling rise to fame. The book opens with the gripping tale of Prince’s final months in 2016, and then transports you back to the Minneapolis of his childhood to tell a story that is by turns tragic and triumphant.

Thanks to the many close friends and associates who shared their stories with the authors, The Rise of Prince will both enlighten and deeply move Prince’s legions of fans. What is ultimately revealed is the very human story of how a young man from a small Midwestern city over came adversity to achieve one of the greatest runs of creativity in pop history, along the way creating an unparalleled universe of side projects, alter egos, and a musical legacy for the ages.

Alex Hahn is a journalist and attorney living in Boston. Laura Tiebert is a veteran nonfiction writer and lives in Chanhassen, MN with her husband and two sons.
