Clinton Heylin, Can You Feel the Silence?: Van Morrison: A New Biography (2004)

This is for the hardcore fan, the reader who won't be content with an abbreviated look at the Irish artist's life. Almost 600 pages long, the tome follows Morrison from his working-class roots through "the dark end of the street" at the turn of the century.
