"At 15 she was already breaking all the rules. In an era-the mid-1960s-when people of her parents' generation didn't speak about "ugly things" like interracial romance, prostitution, and war, Janis Ian was opening her big mouth and getting hounded offstage for singing her taboo-busting lyrics. Society's Child (Tarcher/Penguin) is the hugely readable autobiography of an artist who has lived through success and crushing hardship but knows that ‘you can't sing and cry at the same time.’ Sing on!" — O Magazine ™
"Fans will love the book, of course, but many nonfans, too, should find this painfully candid memoir hard to put down." — Booklist, starred review
"Ian is a natural prose stylist with a real knack for pacing and the telling detail. What might have been a dreary catalog of woe is instead a juicily entertaining look at an unusual life in show business." — Kirkus Reviews
"Fans will appreciate the candor with which Ian discusses these hardships and her gradual path to happiness…" — Publishers Weekly
