This is such a good book!
If you like Baez, you should find this
read very entertaining and interesting -
especially if you grew up in the 60's/70's!
Honest and detailed memoir, tracing the life, loves, and political activism of singer Joan Baez.
My copy has been autographed by Joan Baez.
From the dust jacket: "Written with an intense immediacy that comes from her mastery of the revealing details, AND A VOICE TO SING WITH makes us feel we are there, with Joan, at the central events of our turbulent history-from the smoke-filled coffeehouses of the 1950s folk scene, where she first performed, to the racially tense South of the early sixties, bringing support to terrorized blacks with Martin Luther King, Jr. We meet the Beatles on their first tour of the United States and go to jail with her for supporting the draft resistnace. We huddle with her, terrified, in a bomb shelter in Hanoi and go on tour with her around the world-to Woodstock, where she sang to hundreds of thousands in the middle of the night when she was six months pregnant...
Whether she is recounting her stormy love affair with a young, undiscovered, and very ambitious Bob Dylan... or her secret affair with a woman, or her marriage to David Harris and the pain of their breakup, Joan displays both (her) openness and vulnerability...
