Even if you’ve never heard a note of Grace Jones’ music, if you’ve seen a single photo of her you’ve likely never forgotten it. And for those who wondered what the backstory was on the person behind those striking, sometimes feral images, she’s defied the declaration of the title and done just that, announcing on the first page, “There will be blood.”
