A Saga of Motown Dreams, Success, and BetrayalBook - 2009
The Supremes is a sprawling tale of unforgettable music, cutthroat ambition, and heartbreaking betrayal. Mark Ribowsky explodes Dreamgirl fantasies by taking the reader behind the closed doors of Motown to witness the rise of group leader Diana Ross, the creation of timeless classics like "Where Did Our Love Go?," and the dramatic power struggles within Detroit's fabled music factory. Drawing on firsthand, intimate recollections from knowledgeable sources such as the Temptations's Otis Williams and other Motown contemporaries--many never before interviewed-- The Supremes is "a comprehensive look at the tumultuous relationships within the Supremes as well as among others at the Motown label" ( Library Journal ).
