"[E]minently readable...."
From the Publisher
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.
