The memoir of the small girl (5 foot 1 inch tall) with the huge voice. At the age of 15, in 1964, Lulu – born Marie Lawrie in Glasgow – was already a star with her international hit song “Shout”. At 18 she stole hearts as an English schoolgirl to Sidney Poitier’s teacher with the movie hit “To Sir With Love”. At 21, she married a Bee Gee, Maurice Gibb, and tied as winner of the Eurovision Song Contest with “Boom-Bang-a-Bang”. Yet in 1993 she reached No.1 with “Relight My Fire” (with Take That). Nearly 40 years at the top of the showbiz tree, Lulu has never been afraid to experiment with new trends, and her book reflects the daring that took a girl from a Glasgow tenement to international stardom – or as “To Sir With Love” says, “from crayons to perfume”. “I Don’t Want to Fight” (the title of a song Lulu wrote and Tina Turner recorded) is the candid autobiography of a singer who has never shirked from facing anything.
