Nancy Spungen: If You Knew Nancy…
Cynthia Rose, NME, 21 January 1984
IF ANYTHING CAN PUT THE LID on the Romeo and Juliet myth that has enshrined Nancy Spungen in the post-punk hagiography, it will be a new book entitled And I Dont Want to Live This Life. Its author is her mother, Deborah, and its story goes far beyond the predictable every parents fear angle into territory more truly bizarre than anything the Daily Express could invent.
