Singer, songwriter, supermodel, record producer, actress and iconoclast, Grace Jones is truly one of a kind, equal parts intriguing, intimidating and indefatigable.

From her early days as a model working with Yves St. Laurent and Kenzo, her rise to disco stardom in New York City's Studio 54 followed by her storming the New Wave with her reggae-infused post-punk, through to her arresting, decade-defining work Jean-Paul Goude, her eclectic and iconic film career and her continuing artistic output in the current day, Grace Jones A to Z charts her incredibly rich life. This book looks at her life, her art, creative collaborations, films, friendships and fun – all in a brilliantly illustrated A to Z format.

Steve Wide is an Australian DJ with a long-running British music radio show. He’s run legendary club nights and interviewed countless artists, from Noel Gallagher to Björk. Steve’s previous books include A Field Guide to Punk and A Field Guide to Post-Punk and New Wave.
