Présentation de l'éditeur
A revealing and intimate biography about Janis Joplin, the Queen of Classic Rock, written by her younger sister.
Janis Joplin blazed across the sixties music scene, electrifying audiences with her staggering voice and the way she seemed to pour her very soul into her music. By the time her life and artistry were cut tragically short by a heroin overdose, Joplin had become the stuff of rock–and–roll legend.
Through the eyes of her family and closest friends , we see Janis as a young girl, already rebelling against injustice, racism, and hypocrisy in society. We follow Janis as she discovers her amazing talents in the Beat hangouts of Venice and North Beach–singing in coffeehouses, shooting speed to enhance her creativity, challenging the norms of straight society. Janis truly came into her own in the fantastic, psychedelic, acid–soaked world of Haight–Asbury. At the height of her fame, Janis's life is a whirlwind of public adoration and hard living. Laura Joplin shows us not only the public Janice who could drink Jim Morrison under the table and bean him with a bottle of booze when he got fresh; she shows us the private Janis, struggling to perfect her art, searching for the balance between love and stardom, battling to overcome her alcohol addiction and heroin use in a world where substance abuse was nearly universal.
At the heart of Love, Janis is an astonishing series of letters by Janis herself that have never been previously published. In them she conveys as no one else could the wild ride from awkward small–town teenager to rock–and–roll queen. Love, Janis is the new life of Janis Joplin we have been waiting for–a celebration of the sixties' joyous experimentation and creativity, and a loving, compassionate examination of one of that era's greatest talents.

She was not an abused child or anything like that. She just wanted to find something she loved and art and singing filled those needs for her.She loved music and to sign. She wsa brave and self-confident although once she secured her music deal with Columbia and Clive Davis, she stayed with the drugs. It's just real SAD! Some people are just born restless or are looking for happiness so hard, and find fame and money isn't enough. She was so young she never gave herself a chance to see what could be over the next horizon if she'd of just held on a few more years becuase everyone changes. She did go to a shirk but that didn't help either. ~
I would recommend, to new Janis fans, reading this one first, then venturing onto others, because I think it's worthwhile to learn her complex history, particularly how she got started in singing, before learning the full details of who she was as a world-famous blues queen, which is what we get in Myra's book. Her letters from home are also quite interesting to read, not only for what Janis writes home about, but we also get to see her handwriting, her exuberance in her letters, and doodles/pictures she drew in her letters. Overall, Myra's book shows Janis as an adult and singer and gives us more insight to Janis's complicated personality, whereas Laura's is more of a straightforward history of her life. Both bios are wonderful and are must-reads for Janis fans.
