I found this book exceptional. It was written with such sensitivity and love. I thought the main character would be Betty, the author's mum, but actually woven in was a story of the author's acceptance of being gay. However, the book was also an ode ...more

The first third of this book amazed me. I had no idea Carly Simon could write so well. I was totally plunged into her world. She kept my interest until the chapters about making records, which lagged a bit. Don't miss her descriptions of Warren Beatt ...more
