Strictly Solo CD (available only with this set!)
Best of Janis Ian: The Autobiography Songs (2-CD set)
All right then. You probably know that Janis won a Grammy for narrating her autobiography, and that her competition that year was First Lady Michelle Obama, former president Bill Clinton, Rachel Maddow and Ellen Degeneres.
You may also know that Patience & Sarah, narrated by Janis and the incredible Jean Smart, was nominated for a Grammy this very year, losing to former president Jimmy Carter. (The other nominees were Patti Smith, Dick Cavett, and Amy Poehler.)
And maybe you even know that Janis also narrated (in the first person) the story of a male Kenyan shaman, and the life of a Catholic nun.
But...ou probably don’t know how incredible she is as a narrator, or how diverse. Because the only way to really know that is to listen to this set! A full 46 hours and 59 minutes of listening!!
The audio books alone would set you back close to $125 (and of course, Strictly Solo can’t be purchased anywhere but here). Even so, this entire set can be yours for a scant $99.00 plus shipping & tax.
