It's no surprise that Ann Angel is a super fan of Janis Joplin. Her passion for Janis comes shining through in this book. However, she also writes in such a way as to give us a very full, well rounded picture of this artist explaining Janis' shortcomings and flaws. The book does an exceptional job of creating for the reader the time and place where all this talent intersected. We are still culturally influenced by the "hippie generation". This book is a great historical marker whether you enjoyed Janis' music or not.
