Brother Ray. Ray Charles' Own Story - Ray Charles and David Ritz
Brother Ray is the story of one man's triumph over pain. Born poor and black in the US deep south, blinded as a small boy and orphaned as a teenager, but by the time he was 32 years old he would become known globally as a musical genius. Charles talks of the struggle to the top, years on the road, attitudes to women, drugs money and death (hardback, used).
