's review

it was amazing

This book is made up of several interviews that Malka Marom did with Joni Mitchell through the years, from the early days of Mitchell's career, all the way up to 2012. The interviews are in-depth, broad in scope and at times very intimate and revealing. If you're looking for insight into Joni Mitchell's life and especially her creative process, you will definitely find that here.

Mitchell comes across as funny, opinionated, self-confident and almost arrogant at times - though reading this book you come to realize that she's needed every shred of that confidence and arrogance to carry through her artistic visions through the decades.

She touches on her relationships with Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, she dives deep into the origins of her own musical awakening and creativity, and she is blunt and forthright throughout each one of these interviews. Definitely a great read for anyone with an interest in Joni Mitchell, or the world of music since the 1960s.
