Catch a Fire (Capa dura)In this extraordinary autobiography of "Scary" Spice, Melanie Brown, she covers it all: the council estate childhood, the formation of the Spice Girls, the early months of being groomed for stardom, the subsequent global domination, Geri’s departure, the marriage – and acrimonious divorce – to Jimmy Gulzar, the birth of Phoenix Chi, the solo career and the leap into TV presenting. Not bad for the rebellious, mixed-up girl from Leeds who is still only in her mid-twenties. Born to a working-class mixed-race family, Melanie B grew up feeling different from her schoolfriends. Her hyperactive energy was channelled into drama school, and in 1994 the Spice Girls were formed.
There is surely no one alive on the planet who has not heard of Melanie B, the in-your-face loudmouth who is one of the most popular members of one of the most popular bands of all time. Now, at last, she tells her own story – funny, frank and at times frightening, but never, never dull. The rest is history.
