Defying Gravity: Jordan’s Story by Jordan Mooney
I’m a collector of biographies, and ardent fan and student of the London 70s and 80s Fashion and Music scenes. I’ve read countless biographies from the influencers of the time. I’ve seen Jordan in every book and documentary of the time, and I’ve always wondered what this woman was like.
She does not disappoint, with this open and honest look into her life and the times. It is full of surprising and interesting stories and connections, is well written and held my full attention. I’m thrilled that she finally told her story. This is a must-read for people who are interested with that ground-breaking time of the early UK Punk scene, from one of the only people with the insider knowledge who could share it. I found the book so interesting in fact, that when I finished it, I did more research on Jordan and watched some great YouTube interviews of her speaking and talking about the times. This book is highly recommended! Purchase it here.
