Dealer Notes
This bestselling book set the record straight about Janis Joplin, arguably the most famous woman singer in rock history. Rolling Stone called this book one of the best books about a rock figure. Electrifying, highly acclaimed, and intensely personal Friedman's classic biography of Janis Joplin teems with dramatic insights into Joplin's genius and into the chaotic times that catapulted her to fame as the legendary queen of rock. It is a stunning panorama of the turbulent decade when Joplin's was the rallying voice of a generation that lost itself in her music and found itself in her words.
