Pretty Saucy: Rolling Stone Mick Jagger Promotes Girlfriend Melanie Hamrick’s Debut Novel, “First Position” — She’s a Paperback Writer!


The Beatles have a famous song called “Paperback Writer.”

Now the Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger has a girlfriend who actually IS a paperback writer.

Melanie Hamrick, the mother of Jagger’s 6 year old son Devereaux, has published “First Position,” a novel about a ballerina, in paperback and on Kindle. Penguin/Berkeley is the publisher.

Hamrick herself was a ballerina. She and Mick just attended the gala opening night for American Ballet Theater. She’s 36, he’s 79 (but with the energy of 39). The couple just sold their estate in Florida — where they were near her family — and are sticking to New York.

Reviews? Entertainment Weekly said: “Hamrick makes her debut with this erotic novel that pulses with Black Swan energy…Hamrick offers up a thrilling meditation on the tension between love, desire, and art by combining the artistry of The Red Shoes with the eroticism of Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Mick promoted “First Position,” which hasn’t gotten a lot of publicity since it came out on Tuesday, on Instagram. His quote: “Pretty saucy!”
