Description In The Most Beautiful, a title inspired by the hit song Prince wrote about their legendary love story, Mayte Garcia for the first time shares the deeply personal story of their relationship and offers a singular perspective on the music icon and their world together: from their unconventional meeting backstage at a concert (and the long-distance romance that followed), to their fairy-tale wedding (and their groundbreaking artistic partnership), to the devastating losses that ultimately dissolved their romantic relationship for good. Throughout it all, they shared a bond more intimate than any other in Prince's life. No one else can tell this story or can provide a deeper, more nuanced portrait of Prince--both the famously private man and the pioneering, beloved artist--than Mayte, his partner during some of the most pivotal personal and professional years of his career. The Most Beautiful is a book that will be returned to for decades, as Prince's music lives on with generations to come.
The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince - Staff Choice by Simone Mayte Garcia, once married to Prince, has written this new book about her life with him.
She was a hardworking (belly) dancer living in Germany, only 16 years old, when she got in contact with Prince after sending him a tape of her dancing. She started visiting him in Minneapolis, and slowly but surely they became friends and she was given a role in the New Power Generation, and went on tour with them. After getting married a few years later, they both were eager to start a family.
Referring to his death and her life-after-Prince throughout the book, Mayte Garcia is able to paint a good picture of her history, and their lives together, without making it intrusive. I really enjoyed reading it, and finished it in only two days.
