As you might expect from Andy Cohen’s book imprint, this memoir is confessional with lots of juicy revelations, including the soaring singer’s self-esteem and identity issues (Dad is Black, Mom is white) when she was young and the abuse she received from relatives, classmates and first-husband Tommy Mottola. In the end, therapy and motherhood were as important for her as all those No. 1 hits. (Andy Cohen Books, $30)

The rock star points out that his life was filled with opposites: Black and white (his parents), Manhattan and Brooklyn (his residences), Christian and Jew (his parents again), hippie and heavy-metal (his influences). And this memoir may be the opposite of what fans might expect because it essentially ends with the release of Kravitz’s breakthrough album, “Let Love Rule,” at age 25. However, Kravitz spins a compelling backstory, with the skillful help of David Ritz, accomplished collaborator on star autobiographies by Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Morris Day and more. (Henry Holt, $30)
