Summary
Janis Joplin's parents doted on her and promoted her early talent for art. But the arrival of a brother shattered the bond she had with her father. The break with her parents, along with the rejection of her high school peers, who disapproved of her beatnik look and racially progressive views, cemented her sense of herself as an outcast. She found her tribe with a group of offbeat young men a year ahead of her, who loved her intellectual curiosity, her passion for conversation, and her adventurous search for the blues. She ran off to California, but came back when her heavy drug use scared her into it. During a second stint on the West Coast, she launched a career that would see her crowned the queen of rock and roll. Holly George-Warren captures the way Janis Joplin teetered between the powerful woman you hear in her songs and the little girl who just wanted to go home and feel emotionally safe there
