Angel on My Shoulder: An Autobiography (2000)

Daughter of music icon Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole as an artist in her own right could never quite escape the omnipotence of her father's musical legacy. The diva had a few hits in the late '70s and '80s but a deep depression and a long-term battle with drugs stunted her career. In Angel on My Shoulder, Cole reveals the many precarious situations she found herself in that she always managed to escape. There is lots of heartbreak in this tale but also a ton of hope when we see Natalie's comeback with her album Unforgettable. Angel allows readers to see just how far she's come.
