GIRLS LIKE US Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon--and the Journey of a Generation

by | Read by Susan Ericksen

Biography & Memoir • 23.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

In three interwoven biographies, Sheila Weller chronicles the life and times of three tradition-breaking women singer-songwriters--Carole King, a Brooklyn-born earth mother; Joni Mitchell from the Canadian prairie; and Carly Simon, wealthy New Yorker, radiant, sexy, and riddled by stage fright. Narrator Susan Ericksen has a ball dishing the rock 'n' roll dirt with the girls. Ericksen lends a lovely melodic tone to the stories of these tunesmiths who became the voices of a generation of women. Her reading is controlled and intelligent. Of the women, Weller interviewed only Carly Simon personally, but the book works pretty well, weaving together magazine quotes and interviews with friends and lovers. Ericksen makes the material sound like a novel. No, three novels. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
