All that Glittered. My Life with the Supremes - Tony Turner with Barbara Aria.
Tony Turner was a 12 year old from the New York projects when he by chance or fate met Florence Ballard, then the energy core of the soaring Supremes. He was taken into the heart of the singing group, as part mascot and part gofer. As he grew to manhood he witnessed both the sparkling success and secret heart-wrenching drama of their rise to the top. He describes Flo Ballard'push out of the spotlight and ultimately the group, Diana Ross drive and intimacy with Berry Gordy to turn the Supremes into a stepping stone for her own solo career, and Mary Wilson, beautiful and vivacious - and surprisingly unsure of her own talent, caught in a circle of friendship and treachery (hardcover, pre-owned).
