Fans of George Michael are likely to be thrilled at the news of the release of a brand new George Michael biography coming in November. The ‘powerful’ biography by author Sean Smith will be published by HarperCollins and will be out 16th November 2017, almost a year since the singer’s tragic death.
‘George’ is being pitched as the story of two extraordinary lives, the private man and the public persona. Given the stories that have been told about the singer since his death, it’s likely to be fascinating.
The book will cover everything from his first release on the music scene with ‘Young Guns’ on Top of the Pops, through to Wham! his solo career and the 100 million records he sold in his lifetime. When not producing smash hits, it’s known that George Michael gave millions to worthy causes and touched the lives of many through the years.

The authors include the likes of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, Mark Haddon, and author of The Essex Serpent, Sarah Perry.
