Girls Like Us by Sheila Weller is a 584-page softcover published by Washington Square Press, A Division of Simon & Schuster, Inc., 2008, Reader's Club Copy. There is a bit of sticker residue on the back cover, else very good condition.
This is a groundbreaking and irresistible biography of three of America's most enduring and important musical artists. Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon collectively represent, in their resonant lives and emblematic songs, a great swath of American girls who came of age in the late 1960s. The history of the women of that generation has never been written--until now. Filled with the voices of many dozen's of these women's intimates, who are speaking in these pages for the first time, this alternating biography reads like a novel--except it's all true, and the heroins are famous and beloved. Sheila Weller captures the character of each woman and gives a balanced portrayal enriched by a wealth of new information. Girls Like Us is an epic treatment of midcentury women who dared to break tradition and become what none had been before them--confessors in song, rock superstars, and adventurers of heart and soul.ISBN 13: 978-0-7434-9148-8 (pbk)
