Reviews

"Society's Child is the hugely readable autobiography of an artist who has lived through success and crushing hardship but knows that 'you can't sing and cry at the same time.' Sing on!"
--O, The Oprah Magazine

"Painfully candid . . . hard to put down."
--Booklist (starred review) "A juicily entertaining look at an unusual life in show business."Downbeat yet oddly rollicking and compulsively readable."
--Kirkus Reviews "Deftly written, the life experiences described by Janis Ian in this engaging memoir gives us a peek into the anatomy of a brilliant songwriter'
--Joan Baez "One of life's greatest pleasures is a book that you simply can't put down--one that transports you from start to finish as it elevates, enlightens, engages and entertains. Janis Ian gives you all this in Society's Child."
--Kitty Kelley "A splendid retelling of a major life! Janis Ian is a survivor, and her book is an illuminating and inspiring read."
--Anne McCaffrey "Janis Ian is at once larger-than-life and excruciatingly human. In Society's Child she describes great triumphs, devastating betrayals of every kind, and her extraordinary strength of spirit shines through every page."
--Kathy Mattea "A book of surpassing clarity and truth."
--Orson Scott Card, author of Ender's Game "I laughed, I ached, I wept, I cheered...and ultimately was totally taken by Janis Ian's honest and deeply moving autobiography: an insightful and courageous personal account of her musical, spiritual and emotional journey."
--Noel Paul Stookey, of Peter, Paul & Mary
