Synopsis

Janis Joplin: Under the Influence by Ann Angel

Janis Joplin's compelling story told from teenhood through her rise to fame was an inspirational one. She went from the girl who never fitted in with her peers to one of the most famous and iconic female musicians in American history, who is a huge influence on female artists to this day. This book will include interviews with contemporary women singers like Pink, Lucinda Williams and others whose music has been shaped by Joplin.
