Through a close analysis of Eminem's discography and music videos, Marcia conducts a type of character analysis on Eminem. She spends a significant amount of time dancing between the man (Marshall Mathers) and the artist (Eminem) and tries to account for the dissonance between the two.
An updated edition of the best-selling biography of the unique and uncompromising Slim Shady. From his roots in a racially divided Detroit, through his work Dr. Dre and The Bass Brothers, to his position as a dominant cultural force and headline-grabber, the story of Marshall Mathers continues to cause controversy.
