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 includes dozens of photos from King’s childhood, her own family, and behind-the-scenes images from her performances over the years.

I read her memoir exclaiming, 'Oh, did she write that?' again and again
Daily Mail
'If you've ever wanted to walk alongside a world class musician . . . this is your starting point . . . well worth the read. Just be wary not to be found singing too loudly, too badly and in public
Cerys Matthews, The Times
What a memoir, intelligent, honest, self-effacing, well-written
