“Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson” is a biography of the ‘King of Pop’ with unprecedented insight. Acclaimed journalist Randall Sullivan’s latest work paints an in-depth portrait of Michael Jackson sourced from previously  inaccessible material – access to those who were closest to Jackson in life and in business.

Sullivan’s biography delves into Jackson’s mysterious final years and scandals from his past, in what the Los Angeles Times calls the “first deep-dive narrative” on the star’s life and death. “Untouchable” offers a more significant, evaluative look at Jackson’s childhood abuse, pedophilia allegations, personal relationships, and professional decisions.

Finally, Jackson’s famous mask has been partially lifted.

Guest:

Randall Sullivan, author of Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson (Grove Press); contributing editor to both Rolling Stone and Men's Journal
