A heartfelt memoir from the mother of Amy Winehouse, one of our most celebrated and controversial artists.
Janis Winehouse was born in New York but raised mainly in London. While raising her children, she completed two degrees. Janis introduced the young Amy to the music of Carole King and James Taylor and supported her throughout her musical career. In 2003, Janis was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and was forced to take early retirement in 2009. She now devotes her time to raising money for The Amy Winehouse Foundation and the MS Society. She lives in north London with her husband, Richard.
