Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon and the journey of a generation by Sheila Weller

If you enjoy 60’s and 70’s music you will find Girls like us fascinating.

It’s three biographies in one book but also gives the reader a real taste of life in the popular music culture of the time, especially the changing role of women.

There are great photos (I loved the short-haired, newly married Carole King; the chic, hatted and gloved Joni Mitchell; and the sexy Carly standing next to Bill Clinton) plus plenty of great stories from friends and family.
