Wrestling with Elephants: The Authorised Biography of Don Black

Front Cover
Born in poverty in the 1930s, Don Black quickly grew accustomed to "wrestling with elephants"--doing the hard work necessary to survive, or to write a good lyric. Black should know. An acclaimed songwriter responsible for "Born Free" and a trio of James Bond title songs, among hundreds, he has won every possible award and worked with the top talent, from Andrew Lloyd Webber to Michael Jackson.
