Kate Bush: the subject of murmured legend and one of the most distinctive musicians of the modern era.

Tom Doyle also intertwines vivid reconstructions of transformative moments in her career and insights from the friends and collaborators closest to her, including her photographer brother John Carder Bush and fellow artists David Gilmour, John Lydon, and Youth.
