Description du produit

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 Don't know how I missed this 7 mai 2017
Par Ava - Publié sur

I don't know how I missed this Memoir of Joan Baez all these years since I have been her biggest fan since the 1960's.
Ever since I first heard her sweet soprano voice sing the song she wrote for Bob Dylan I was hooked. After reading about her activism
for civil rights with MLK and her stance on non violence in Hanoi against the Vietnam war I love her even more
She was a very courageous woman who dared to stand up for what she believed in. Even being jailed for her protests. I was impressed
even more after reading about her father's beliefs about globalism and preservation of our water and resources. He was a very smart man
who taught at Harvard and imparted his strong beliefs on to her. She writes of her struggles and her vulnerability. It is an honest and insightful book which I found very interesting reading.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 I have always loved Joan Baez' singing 12 mai 2017

I have always loved Joan Baez' singing, and was fortunate to see her recent 75th birthday concert on PBS, which renewed my interest in her. When I found this book I didn't know what to expect, but I found it a very candid, well written, honest account of her life. It was actually much longer and more detailed than I expected, and I came away with a different impression of Ms. Baez than I had held previously based only on hearing her sing or seeing her in concert. She seems so serious when singing, but then at the end of each song that smile breaks out and opens a window into her more private self, which is very much alive, playful, and passionate. I was also very much impressed with the breadth and depth of her activism and came away with an even more profound respect for her sand what she has done to make our world a better place.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 And a Memoir To Treasure 18 mai 2014
Par Anita Madrid - Publié sur

She did more than sing. Joan's voice and songs galvanized, fueled, and triggered the social revolution that was the sixties. Born at the right time, to the right family, with the perfect gifts of voice and commitment to social justice. It is no wonder that governments feared her innocent power to jump-start generations to question and to care. Her memoir offers a unique look back to that era but also into her personal struggle to understand the forces that swept her to the front lines of so many causes. A bit like reading "Alicia in Wonderland" with many impressive and whimsical characters. I was exhilarated, afraid, suspicious, sceptical, exhausted, and moved to tears by her sojourn. Her memoir humanizes the "legend" and is a gift to all who seek to serve others.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Joan is an Example for us 25 juillet 2012
Par Ralph F. Ranieri - Publié sur

This book was a complete surprise to me. I knew Joan could sing, but I never knew what a full life she lived and what compassion she had in her heart. The book was a trip through the sixties and seventies. Like Forest Gump, Joan was at all the important junctures of those decades, Woodstock, Bob Dillion, Selma with Martin Luther King Jr, Hanoi during the 11-day bombing, in Lech Walesa's home when he was under house arrest and at Live Aid. The great people of that era wanted her around. Why not, she was kind, beautiful and talented. Her compassion was genuine. After coming out of the air raid shelter in Hanoi, after a bombing, she went to an injured child and called for help. She stayed with the child until someone came and took him to a hospital. He survived. She is up front about her neuroses and phobias, her thoughts and her feelings. She made me feel normal and reminded me that you can get through life with your hang-ups. The descriptions of people, places and events are as clear as a photo. She tells great stories, and shares juicy gossip. And when you finish you will find yourself challenged and wondering what can I do with my life to improve the lives of others.

I loved this autobiography! Joan writes beautifully! I've always been a fan but after reading this I became a truly devoted fan. My admiration for her soared. What a courageous, extremely gifted, funny, beautiful, and intuitively amazing woman! I highly recommend this book. I hope she writes part two. Bravo Joan!
