Another good read























Janis Ian's Society's Child, is a top-notch memoir, well-written and very frank. I had no idea Ian's life had been so turbulent. The book is a real survivor's story. My full review is here.

Great review, M! "I learned the truth at seventeen." I still don't understand how a song that deep managed to make the top 10 on AM radio back in the day....

I know what you mean. It's a great song. Glad you liked the review. The book is really fine. Ian is a remarkably good writer.

"Readers may want more in the way of clear-eyed navel-gazing, but they'll have to get that from Ian's music."

Ha! :-D
