Mary Wells: The Tumultuous Life of Motown's First Superstar by Peter Benjaminson
One of the most captivating personalities on the Motown roster during its glory days, singer Mary Wells was a force of nature: complex, independent, and resourceful. She defined the emerging sound of Motown in the early 1960s with a string of hit singles composed by Smokey Robinson. This turbulent biography is based in part on four hours of deathbed interviews with Wells, as well as interviews from family, friends, husbands, and lovers.
