This is one of the first (and best) books about Frank Zappa. Written by Alain Dister in collaboration with Urban Gwerder. Dister visited Zappa in Los Angeles first time in August 1966 and since then collected the material for this book. Gwerder added a "Gargantuan Appendix" – genealogy, discography, bibliography, filmography. The book (the French edition) contains many interesting and original photos. It is translated into German and Spanish, but not into English.
