Born to a musical family outside of London and relocated to Liverpool, Costello created his own form of punk, became one of the first artists to exploit the newly burgeoning MTV video world, and managed to make himself a huge reputation in the U.K and the U.S. through his catchy tunes, provocative lyrics, and some instances of bad behavior. This is his story, written himself, rich with anecdotes about family and fellow musicians, and introspective about the creation of his famous songs.

Whew. This is a very long audio book, read by the author. There are plenty of details of what he did, who he knew, what music he wrote (including many samples of lyrics). Maybe this was not the book for me, as I know little about Elvis Costello, it was way more than I wanted to know. That it was not written chronologically was sometimes confusing. And maybe I am not impressed by all of the musicians he met and worked with, or how he came up with the lyrics to any particular song.
