Gainsbourg The Biography:
When Serge Gainsbourg died in 1991, France went into mourning.
Gainsbourg redefined French pop, from his beginnings as cynical chansonnier and mambo-influenced jazz artist to the ironic "ye-ye" beat and lush orchestration of his 1960s work to his launching of French reggae in the 1970s to the electric funk and disco of his last albums.
Gilles Verlant's biography of Gainsbourg is the best and most authoritative in any language. Drawing from numerous interviews and their own friendship, Verlant provides a fascinating look at the inner workings of 1950s to 1990s French pop culture and the conflicted and driven songwriter, actor, director and author that emerged from it.
