Bob Marley, My Son

by Cedella Marley-Booker with Anthony C. Winkler

In this revealing and poignant account of the life of her eldest son, reggae icon Bob Marley (1945-1980), Mother Cedella Marley-Booker (or Madda Booker, as Jamaicans say) tells the full story as only a parent could, and tells it in the mellifluous but earthy tones of her own distinct voice. Known as "Nesta" to his family, Marley was a troubled youth who introduced the world to reggae and through that music became an artist whose work remains timeless and vital. Bob Marley, My Son is a celebration of his life and the story of the people whose lives he touched.
