A Natural Woman: A Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A memoir by the iconic singer-songwriter chronicling her story from her beginnings in Brooklyn through her remarkable success as one of the world's most acclaimed musical talents, to her present day as a leading performer and activist. From her marriage to Gerry Goffin, with whom she wrote dozens of songs that hit the charts, to her own achievements, notably with Tapestry, which remained on the charts for more than six years, to her experiences as a mother, this memoir chronicles one of music's most successful and fascinating stars.

The book will include dozens of photos from King's childhood, her own family, and behind-the-scenes images from her performances over the years.

Review:

"A young Jewish girl growing up in Brooklyn, N.Y., in the 1940s and '50s hits it big (huge) in the pop music field and lives to tell us all about it. In her fascinating memoir, singer/songwriter Carole King chronicles her life story. And while she's seen her share of sorrows — parents' divorce, brother's institutionalization, four marriages, one physically abusive husband — most of King's life has been blessed. Of course, she had talent, a background in music and drama, and a touch of chutzpah. She recorded hit albums, played everywhere, and knew them all: Neil Sedaka, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, the Fugs, John and Yoko. In this audio edition, King narrates (and sings) her memoir — as much a history of rock 'n' roll as of her own life — and once she begins telling her exciting, tumultuous story, it's hard to stop listening. She narrates slowly and enunciates clearly. King's voice is positive, chirpy, and utterly engaging, and she proves an excellent storyteller. A Grand Central hardcover."

Synopsis:

Carole King takes us from her early beginnings in Brooklyn, to her remarkable success as one of the world's most acclaimed songwriting and performing talents of all time. A NATURAL WOMAN chronicles King's extraordinary life, drawing readers into her musical world, including her phenomenally successful #1 album Tapestry, and into her journey as a performer, mother, wife and present-day activist. Deeply personal, King's long-awaited memoir offers readers a front-row seat to the woman behind the legend.

The audiobook includes a bonus PDF of pictures, an original piano piece, a cappella performances, and a video conversation with the author are included.
