Summary, etc.:
In the 1970s, Marvin Gaye was the soulful prince of Motown with the seductive liquid voice; his chart-topping, socially conscious album What's Going On made him a superstar. Primarily silent since Marvin's tragic death in 1984, Jan Gaye gives a cautionary tale about the ecstasy and dangers of loving him-- and a memoir of drugs, sex, and old school R & B. She reveals what it's like to be in love with a creative genius who transformed popular culture and whose artistry continues to be celebrated today.
