Bright Lights; Dark Shadows by : Carl Magnus Palm
By the time ABBA split up; no one was in any doubt that behind the gliiter there was a dark side; and behind the smiling group were four troubled individuals. But even as a whole new generation of fans discover ABBA's great music; Anni-Frid; Agnetha; Benny; and Björn have continued to remain rather shadowy; secretive figures. Their marriages; personal break-ups; and superficial biographical details are well-known... but who exactly were ABBA? How did Norwegian Ann-Frid; the illegitimate daughter of a German soldier; become a real-life princess? How did folksy Benny and Björn reinvent themselves as an international pop force to rival Lennon & McCartney? And what actually happened to blonde Agnetha who smiled a lot but never really looked happy? The author answers these and many more questions about the hit group that no one took seriously... until everyone did. Each page is a revelation and Palm's acute understanding of the culture of his native Sweden makes these sometimes dark personal stories understandable in a unique way.
