Product description

Review

"I devoured this book—thrilling, dimensional, thorough; a gift to any Joni Mitchell fan; an in-depth portrait of the life of an artist. It felt oddly like tracking my own genealogy, as Joni Mitchell, unbeknownst to her, raised me from a very early age."
— Edie Falco, star of Nurse Jackie and The Sopranos

"The way that Monk writes freely about topics that aren’t directly linked to the plain facts of Mitchell’s biography... at first seems tangential, but it comes to be one of the best aspects of the book."— Biographile.com

"Essential for the Joni Mitchell superfan, and even people more casually acquainted with her work may enjoy what they learn"—Publishers Weekly

"Monk's [Joni] is the closest thing to essential reading. … This unique and thoughtful biography is recommended for all fans of Joni Mitchell.”—Library Journal, Starred review

"[Monk] lifts the veil on her fellow countrywoman. Her account of Mitchell's dramatic rise to fame and countless love affairs, which inspired her songs, makes for a riveting read."— Christian Science Monitor, Top Pick

"With clear-cutting language and an encyclopedic rock knowledge, Monk pursues the project with the laser-sharp focus of an anthropologist, digging for a more genuine portrait of the love-song-singing ingenue. ...an insightful read from cover to cover"—Boxx Music Magazine
