On the back of the book, there is the following text:

"She's So Unusual is the debut album that catapulted Cyndi Lauper to superstardom last year. The title couldn't be more appropriate. With her multicolored hair and makeup , and her clothes that look like fashions from another planet, Cyndi Lauper has captured the hearts and minds of millions of Americans.

Last year, Cyndi broke the Beatles' long-term record. She had FIVE top-ten smash hits on her debut album: "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" "Time After Time" "All Through The Night" "She Bop" and "Money Changes Everything". She won the 1985 Grammy as the most promising artist of the year and was chosen by MS. magazine as one of the most admirable women of the year. Robert Palmer of New York Times called her singing "spectacular".

Lauper is a terrific songwriter and singer, but most remarkable of all is her ability to project personality wherever she goes, whether it's the TONIGHT show or the cover of NEWSWEEK, Lately she's gotten into the professional wrestling game as a promoter. Her strangely wonderful personality is captured perfectly in this biography illustrated with color throughout."

Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir

Legendary and iconic singer-songwriter Cyndi Lauper offers a poignant account of the journey that led her to become an international superstar. From her years growing up in Queens, New York, to the making of enduring hits like 'Time After Time', 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' and 'True Colors', to becoming an actress, a mother, an outspoken activist and maintaining a music career that has lasted more than thirty years.

After leaving her childhood home at seventeen, Cyndi took on a series of jobs: racetrack hot walker, IHOP waitress and, as she puts it, 'gal Friday the thirteenth', as she pursued her passion for music. She worked her way playing small gigs and broke out in 1983 with 'She's So Unusual' which earned her a Grammy for Best New Artist and made her the first female artist in history to have four top five singles on a debut album. And while global fame wasn't always what she expected, she has remained focused on what matters most. Cyndi is a gutsy real-life heroine who has never been afraid to speak her mind and stick up for a cause - whether it's women's rights, gay rights, or fighting against HIV/AIDS.

With her trademark warmth and humour, Cyndi fearlessly writes of a life she's lived only on her own terms.
