From one of the most interesting and iconic musicians of our time, a piercingly tender, funny, and harrowing account of the path from suburban poverty and alienation to a life of beauty, squalor and unlikely success out of the NYC club scene of the late ’80s and ’90s.There were many reasons Moby was never going to make it as a DJ and musician in the New York club scene of the late 80s and early 90s.
