About the Author

Myra Friedman has written on music and the arts and on contemporary cultural and social movements. Once a musician herself, she worked in the record industry and, in the late sixties, was Janis Joplin's publicist until the star's death in October 1970. Her biography of Janis Joplin is considered one of the most moving and significant books about a rock figure ever written. A landmark work when first published in 1973, it won the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award and received a National Book Award nomination.

Reviews

"One of the best books about a rock figure thus far...Buried Alive is unquestionably an accomplishment and it may well be the best portrait we'll have of Janis -- and past even that, it seems a study of the motivations of stardom as true as one is likely to achieve....I'd take Buried Alive over Norman Mailer's metaphysical Marilyn any day!" -- Rolling Stone

"Brilliant, marvelous, emotionally devastating...I don't think there's anything about Janis the book leaves untouched....I can almost hear her speak and, more relevantly, hear her laugh." -- New York Daily News "Written with a sympathetic intelligence, at times fiercely lyrical, Buried Alive is an honest book about Joplin the idol....This is the best book yet about rock...."
