Janis Ian was catapulted into the spotlight in 1966 at the age of 15, when her soul-wrenching song 'Society's Child' became a hit. An intimate portrait of an interracial relationship, 'Society's Child' climbed the charts despite the fact that many radio stations across the country refused to play it because of its controversial subject matter. However, this was only the beginning of a long and illustrious career.

Audio listen on a road trip to Minnesota.
Meat and potatoes autobiography like no other.
As a fan of Janis Ian I expected to enjoy the read, but her honesty catapulted over my expectations. From her youth as a teenage musician to the underbelly of the industry as an adult, and finally finding happiness despite the hurdles it took to get there.
