MUSIC~Verdict: In time to bank on the publicity of Eminem's new memoir and forthcoming album, his mother, Nelson, releases her side of the story in an autobiography that is not a necessary purchase. Eminem himself, however, offers an illuminating look into his writing process that is highly recommended for popular music collections in public and high school libraries. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 6/1/08.] Background: Marshall Mathers III, aka Eminem, has produced a richly illustrated account of his life and career, complete with never-before-seen photographs and stunning reproductions of his lyric sheets, which offer a revealing look at his frenzied imagination. The DVD features unreleased footage with Eminem's narration. Nelson, infamous for filing a $10 million defamation lawsuit against her son, offers her version of their fraught family history. She derides those who cling to Eminem's coattails hoping for a little reflected fame and easy money without acknowledging that with this book, she has joined their ranks.-Bill Baars, Lake Oswego P.L., OR.
