From the moment she stepped foot in NYC, Addison Stone’s subversive street art made her someone to watch, and her violent drowning left her fans and critics craving to know more. I conducted interviews with those who knew her best—including close friends, family, teachers, mentors, art dealers, boyfriends, and critics—and retraced the tumultuous path of Addison's life. I hope I can shed new light on what really happened the night of July 28.
—Adele Griffin (summary from Goodreads.com)
Adele Griffin has put together a memorable biography of a young star gone too violently and too soon with The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone. Full of interviews from Stone's family, close friends, and other individuals, Griffin paints a stunning portrait of the enigmatic and troubled star. Photos of Addison's private life and some of her most well-known paintings are featured in the book. They take on all new context surrounded by tales of Addison's successes and struggles.
Below, I present my tribute to Addison herself and Griffin's fantastic work.
