Mourning Amy Winehouse: A biblical vixen goes back to black

Late last year, I spent the better part of a month working on a lengthy profile on Amy Winehouse, the British Jewish retro soul singer who tragically died over the weekend at 27. It was in the doldrums of this process, which included reading a book about Jewish immigrants who perform in blackface in the early 20th century and researching the bizarre music producer Phil Spector, one of her primary musical influences -- that I was forced to ask myself: Why do I like Amy Winehouse so much?
