Product description

Review

"Weller has picked her three subjects because of their different demographic appeal, the better to tell her social history ... Weller puts it all in great context ... Weller has done them - and girls like us - proud" (Critic’s Choice by Ray Connolly Daily Mail)

"Eminently readable ... a racy read that may tell you more than you need to know about the boyfriends, break-ups and breakdowns of its subjects" (Sean O'Hagan Observer)

"How Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Bill Clinton's favourite Carly Simon embodied a generation's dreams; perfect bedtime reading for baby-boomers" (Observer Music Monthly)

"charts this trio's rocky marriages, their struggles with success and , perhaps most poignantly, their fading with age" (Sheryl Garratt Mail on Sunday)

"A page turner ... fills a gaping hole in the history of the counterculture of the '60s by providing a juicy and politically astute chronicle of the careers of three women who turned pop music upside down" (Peter Biskind, author of Easy Riders, Raging Bulls)

Book Description

The lives, loves, songs and times of Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon - and how they mirrored and fuelled the journey of a generation of women
