NEW RELEASE

Mirror in the Sky: The Life and Music of Stevie Nicks

Coming soon from the University of California Press: Morrison's book about the iconic musician, and the book's namesake, Stevie Nicks.

Pre-Order Now

"Though Nicks has characterized her own techniques as spontaneous and idiosyncratic, this book approaches her process in a serious manner, pointing out the chord progressions, lyrics, and rhythms that comprise her message of independence and self-assurance. Here, Nicks is re-centered as an artistic presence in her own right, and her opulent attire, seductive mystique, and wide influences become proof of her lasting star quality.

"Written with respect and admiration, Mirror in the Sky analyzes Stevie Nicks’s music with care, noting how it expressed the sentiments of a generation."
