In this intimate account of Amy Winehouse's life, music, and untimely death, her father Mitch Winehouse gives readers full access to his daughter’s private life in the midst of her immensely public triumphs and tragedies.
Amy Winehouse needs no introduction. A critically acclaimed recording artist, Amy touched millions with her music during her short but extraordinary life. Following her tragic death in July 2011, Mitch Winehouse wants to tell her incredible story in full.
Amy, My Daughter will take the reader through her mischievous early years, her rise to stardom and to her much publicised struggles with addiction. The book will bring the many layers of her life together - the personal, the private, and the public - to create a fitting tribute to his much loved daughter.
Using exclusive extracts from the diary Mitch kept that details shocking and concerning events in his daughter's life, Amy, My Daughter promises to be the definitive book on an iconic figure who, although tragically taken at an early age, has left a musical legacy that will enthral audiences for many years to come.
All proceeds from the book will be donated to The Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity that Mitch has established in Amy’s name to help children and young adults facing difficulty and adversity in their lives.

Mitch, Amy's Father
If the narrative had been less about Mitch the father and more about Amy the artist. It was painfully obvious that performance anxiety was at the root of the substance abuse YET performance was again and again encouraged and expected. Every time I heard the words "I recorded in my diary" it sounded like an awful, awful cashing in on family celebrity.
Disappointment in how much insight I gained into the psyche of Mitch, but how very little was revealed about Amy.
God bless each and every one of our children. May their spirits soar...
