The first full-length biography of Carly Simon, from an acclaimed music journalist who has known her for decades. Carly Simon has won two Grammys and an Academy Award, and her albums have sold more than forty million copies.
Tapping private archives, family interviews, and a forty-year friendship with the legend herself, Stephen Davis delivers a crucial new biography of one of the key figures of the singer/songwriter movement. Carly Simon's story is one of the last untold epics of American rock and roll. The first feminist pop star and an icon of the baby boom who has spoken for several generations through her songs, she has had a dramatic life full of adventures: while always under media scrutiny, she has also managed to keep most of her private life secret. This book captures Carly's journey from privileged daughter of publisher Richard Simon, to a shy teenager living in her sister's shadow, to one of the Simon Sisters folk duo, to a sexually liberated singer/songwriter, to the wife of heroin-addicted superstar James Taylor, to mother, breast cancer survivor, prolific Hall of Famer, and one of popular music's most influential artists.--From publisher description.
