Christopher Ciccone's extraordinary memoir is based on his forty-seven years of growing up with, working with and understanding the most famous woman of our time who has intrigued, scandalized and entertained millions for half a century.
Through most of the iconic star's kaleidoscopic career, Christopher played an important role in her life: as her back-up dancer, her personal assistant, her dresser, her decorator, her art director, her tour director.
If you think you knew everything there is to know about Madonna, your are wrong. Only Christopher can tell the full-scale, riveting untold story behind Madonna's carefully constructed mythology, and the real woman behind the glittering façade.
From their shared Michigan childhood, which Madonna transcended, then whisked Christopher to Manhattan with her in the early eighties, where he slept on her roach-infested floor and danced with her in clubs all over town - Christopher was with her every step of the way, experiencing her first-hand in all her incarnations. The spoiled daddy's girl, the punk drummer, the raunchy Boy Toy, Material Girl, Mrs. Sean Penn, Warren Beatty's glamorous Hollywood paramour, loving mother, Mrs. Guy Ritchie, English grande dame - Christopher witnessed and understood all of them, as his own life was inexorably entwined with that of his chameleon sister.
He tangled with a cast of characters from artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, to Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Moss, Demi Moore and, of course, Guy Ritchie, whose advent in Madonna's life splintered the loving relationship Christopher once had with her.
The mirror image of his legendary sister, with his acid Ciccone tongue, Christopher pulls no punches as he tells his astonishing story.
Life with My Sister Madonna is the juicy, can't-put-it-down story you've always wanted to hear, as told by Madonna's younger brother.

    mi fa pensare che ci sia quasi quasi lo zampino della sorella nella scrittura...
    e sopratutto si capisce che nn è nient altro che gelosia dietro le sue critiche

    È il libro scandalo scritto dal fratello di Madonna. In cui si scopre che lei è tirchia, insicura, perfida e omofoba. La vera sorpresa è che anche l'autore del libro ne esce male. Christopher Ciccone appare velleitario, un eterno aspirante, un dilettante in ognuno dei campi che ha frequentato e un vero succube della sorella. La tirata finale sulla Cabala è particolarmente penosa. Quello che ne viene fuori è un ritratto poco lusinghiero di entrambi i fratelli. Che Madonna non fosse una simpaticona ce lo aspettavamo un po' tutti. Che il fratello fosse un impiastro di questa portata è invece la vera chicca del libro. Stile tipico da biografia americana scritta da giornalista prezzolato e riletta da uffici legali spaventati di pestare qualche piede.
