Book Review: Reckless Daughter

Reckless Daughter is the Portrait of Joni Mitchell.  There were a lot of things that I didn’t know about her that I learned after reading this book – that she survived polio, she had a bad 1st marriage, Graham Nash proposed to her.  Her mother said to her, “Don’t have kids when you get grown” (solid advice, I think, but it kind of showed how her mother felt about having her)  Crosby, Stills, & Nash were formed in her LIVING ROOM. (How awesome is THAT!?).  She was rumored to be suicidal after she broke up with Jackson Browne. (She wasn’t.)  In addition to being a musician, Joni is also an artist – and in her eyes she is an artist first, then musician.  This book really makes you feel like you are really, really getting to know Joni and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
