Serge Gainsbourg: A Fistful of Gitanes

Buy: Amazon | iTunes | Nook

United For Opportunity is proud to release, for the first-time on ebook, a New Expanded Edition of Serge Gainsbourg: A Fistful of Gitanes by Sylvie Simmons, the award-winning rock writer and the New York Times Best-selling author of I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen. Originally published in 2001, long out of print and never until now available digitally, A Fistful of Gitanes was the first biography in English to capture Gainsbourg in all his gleeful outrageousness and contradictions, and counted Gainsbourg’s longtime partner Jane Birkin and legendary novelist JG Ballard among its avid fans.

Simmons’s work will stand as the definitive take on a dizzying genius. This new edition includes an expanded discography.
