Description


This new edition of the best-selling ABBA book has been updated to include details of Mamma Mia 's extraordinary success and the ongoing lives of Bj rn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha F ltskog, their music and their personal lives. It has also been substantially revised throughout.

As generations of new fans discover ABBA's timeless music, Frida, Agnetha, Benny and Bj rn remain rather shadowy, secretive figures. Their marriages, personal break-ups and superficial biographical details are well known...but who exactly are ABBA?

  • How did Norwegian orphan Anni-Frid become a real-life princess?
  • How did folksy Benny and Bj rn become an international pop force to rival Lennon & McCartney?
  • What happened to blonde Agnetha who smiled a lot but never really looked happy?
  • And how many billions have Abba been offered to reform?

World renowned ABBA expert Carl Magnus Palm's acute understanding of the culture of his native Sweden offers a unique insight into the group, and their sometimes dark personal stories.

Bright Lights Dark Shadows: The Real Story of ABBA is the ultimate account of the rise and fall of a legendary group and a biography of rare perception.
