Revue de presse

"[A]n eyewitness' testimony of watching -- indeed, making -- cultural history. Eloquent and compassionate, Joan Baez has stunned millions with the purity of her voice; she has also acted unwaveringly on her non-party-line beliefs, and it's fitting that her memoir would offer its own share of provocation." -- Gail Caldwell, The Boston Globe

"[A] revealing autobiography...[H]er honesty and ideals are appealing, and in her life story one can see the passage of an artistic Everyman." -- Barbara Goldsmith, The New York Times Book Review

Présentation de l'éditeur

• The perfect time for a reissue: In October 2009, PBS will air a ninety-minute primetime special on Joan Baez as part of the Emmy Award-winning American Masters series. Told often from Baez’s perspective, but supported by a rich performance and historical archive, the documentary centers on her career as a musician, power as an artist, those who influenced her, and those she championed. She will also be on a 27-city U.S. tour starting July 2009..

• A musical force and a catalyst for social change: At the age of eighteen Baez was an international star with a Time magazine cover story; fifty years later she has thirty-three albums to her credit. She also marched alongside Martin Luther King, Jr., was jailed for supporting the draft resistance, and sang in the first Amnesty International tour. An extraordinary woman who has led an eventful life, Baez’s memoir is as honest, unpretentious, and courageous as she is. .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very enjoyable! 25 janvier 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Honest, humorous, well written. Ms. Baez dosen't pull any punches as she shares the story of her career and escapades with her readers. If you are a Baez fan you will enjoy this book. I had no idea that Joan was such an accomplished writer. I wish she'd write more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Moving, intelligent, and haunting display of self 21 avril 2002
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
An excruciatingly lovely, honest portrayal of Joan Baez' life, from self-conscious childhood through more self-confident adulthood (she speaks of self demons that haunt her yet). Includes photographs of self, family, performances, and other public appearances. A professed non-reader, non afficionado of public (regimented) learning, Joan intelligently writes about non violence, her public issues, and relationships, and in doing so, encourages readers to make more of their own personal and public lives. Powers to be: Please give this woman a Grammy for all of her talent!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fly on the wall perspective on a great story 24 juin 2006
Par kooky Kid - Publié sur Amazon.com
She's gutsy and candid and a bit naughty- I loved this book because of it's particular insightfulness. Joan makes sure that we "get" her essence. Although only slightly familiar with her music ; I have become much more so after reading about her passion and ambition. there are some great snapshots of people; of course we see Dylan from a slightly scorned woman perspective- but tale hasn't hurt this unwashed phenomenon's career one bit. Truly engaging is hearing firsthand from Joan what it is like to be flying high ( while selling records) to being tossed around as a second stringer as the fads shift. The chapter on Live Aid is a hoot- the "latest thing" was madonna of all people. I would love to read a sequel- C'mon Joan-let's go.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting autobiography of a life well lived 25 novembre 2009
Par Oldnslow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Joan Baez's music and life as an activist-pacifist make for a unique story. She is a giant in both areas. Her first ten years (the Vanguard years) likely have never been equaled by any other American folksinger--the purity of her voice(and her wonderful guitar playing) and her great taste resulted in a series of albums (at least the first 6 on Vanguard) that truly deserve classic status. Her activism, repardless of one's political bent, must be recognized and respected, and this book doesn't even chronicle her work in this regard for the last 20 years. Her writing is breezy and makes for an interesting read-- I much prefer this kind of book, even with perhaps some faults and a lack of editing, rather than some ghost written autobiography one usually encounters. For a more complete picture of Baez I suggest reading "Positively 4th Street" by David Hajdu, which expertly chronicles the unique interrelationship between the Baez sisters, Dylan, and Richard Farina in the years 1960-65. Baez pretty much skips over this aspect of her life, yet it is essential to get a whole picture of those critical years, especially since she and Dylan were such important and influential figures during that time. The recent PBS documentary on Baez is also well worth watching, as it brings you up to her current situation. An enjoyable read for Baez fans.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sensitive and delicate in the personal sense. 28 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the only "novel" I have read twice and would like to pick up again. I found the truth more fascinating and heart-warming than any good fiction! Ms. Baez's openness in sharing personal information gives the reader insight into understanding her motives/lyrics and direction. It is also interesting to "see" inside the workings of one who is trying to make a difference in the world versus personal and public views of a performer. Ms. Baez literary style displays her intelligence, forsight, and concerns. I would like to read future works by Ms. Baez reflecting, as a woman, how she acquired her aspirations and confidence...familial and/or inborn!
