Customer Review

on April 29, 2012
One of America's greatest songwriters writes very little about song writing. Gives no insight into her process or influences. The natural woman writes endlessly about her escape from society to live in nature but seems to have very little connection to the natural world.
She marries a homless man because he was handsome. He beats her. He doesn't work. She supports him. He dies from a drug overdose. She then marries another homeless man who lives in a teepee in the woods. He doesn't work either. They divorce.

She has no insight into her own life as a co-dependent who's wildly rich but never seems to enjoy her wealth. Much of her wealth came from writing hits for the monkees, yet she writes a paragraph on that experience.

But she does write a chapter on Gary Hart and another on how horrible Reagan was. I guess because she dropped out if society she has failed to learn that even Liberals extol the virtues of Regan these days.

What she dies do us plug her cds and dvds throughout the book.

A great songwriter whose greatness seemed to be over after she turned 27.

Very sad story.
