More About This Title Lulu: I Don't Want to Fight
This is the remarkable memoir of the small girl (5 foot 1 inch tall) with the huge voice. At the age of 15, in 1964, Luluborn Marie Lawrie in Glasgowwas already a star with her international hit song "Shout." At 18 she stole hearts as an English schoolgirl to Sidney Poitier's teacher with the movie hit To Sir With Love. At 21, she married a Bee Gee, Maurice Gibb, and tied as winner of the Eurovision Song Contest with "Boom-Bang-a-Bang." Yet in 1993 she reached No.1 with "Relight My Fire" (with Take That). Nearly 40 years at the top of the showbiz tree, Lulu has never been afraid to experiment with new trends, and her book reflects the daring that took a girl from a Glasgow tenement to international stardomas To Sir With Love says, "from crayons to perfume." I Don't Want to Fight (the title of a song Lulu wrote and Tina Turner recorded) is the devastatingly candid autobiography of a singer who has never shirked from facing anything.
Lulu is one of the most recognizable popular singers in the world, in a career stretching from "Shout" in 1962 to "Together" in 2002.
