New Carly Simon bio book is pretty bad actually

I don’t talk about this on here too much but I am a big sucker for singer-songwriters from the early 1970s. I love that music. Well, there’s a new biography that just came out about Carly Simon called More Room in a Broken Heart: The True Adventures of Carly Simon. And… it’s got some problems. Plagiarism, messed up facts, lazy writing, rushed to print. I blogged about it on my secret and long neglected singer-songwriter blog here and here. If you’re a Carly Simon fan like me, I would instead highly recommend getting Sheila Weller’s Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon – And the Journey of a Generation, which was made with Carly’s cooperation and is apparently being made into a movie.

(Back to comics soon! I promise! It’s been a wacky week.)
