From the Publisher
Editors Note A colorful and intimate portrait of three of the twentieth century's most important musical artists offers a female perspective on coming of age during the 1960s as viewed through the lives and careers of Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon, capturing the three women's diverse backgrounds, their individual personalities, and their seminal contribution to modern music. 125,000 first printing.
Annotation More than just a biography of three of rock music's great female performers--Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon--GIRLS LIKE US creates a vivid and thrilling look at this dynamic period of feminism, when women like King, Mitchell, and Simon took on new roles, found new ambitions, and developed new attitudes towards life. All three women came from dramatically different backgrounds--farmers, working class, New York elite--but as this page-turning book shows, all three grew up to become key figures in an amazing revolution.
