“...achieves the difficult feat of capturing the multiple layers of Abba...with a deftness unusual in a rock biography.” –Sunday Times

As generations of new fans discover ABBA’s timeless music, Frida, Agnetha, Benny and Björn remain rather shadowy, secretive figures. Their marriages, personal break-ups and superficial biographical details are well known…but who exactly are ABBA?

How did Norwegian orphan Anni-Frid become a real-life princess? How did Benny and Björn become an international pop force to rival Lennon & McCartney? What happened to Agnetha, who smiled a lot but never really looked happy? And how many billions have Abba been offered to re-form?

This new edition of the best-selling, Bright Lights Dark Shadows include details of Mamma Mia!’s extraordinary success and the lives of Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog since.
