I have long wanted to read a bio of Janis Joplin. Stumbled across the 3rd edition of this book at a used book sale last year and it finally worked its way to the top of my bedside TBR pile. The author, who wrote for Rolling Stone, unabashedly extols Janis's talent, intelligence, and authenticity. As its title says, it really is more of a portrait than a full-blown biography. It's almost kaleidoscopic in feel, dizzying, and very apt for a description of Janis's life.
