In The Trees is just about the only place in Carly Simon’s world that there aren’t boys.
She was the first artist in history to win a Grammy Award, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award for the same song (“Let the River Run” from the movie Working Girl).
Growing up the daughter of a high-flying publishing executive, Simon learned early on to crave love and attention, even though she famously suffers from crippling stage fright.
Men were her salvation – usually famous men, including her husband James Taylor.
Carly Simon has had a complicated life and this book is filled with gossip, juicy insights and is a story of her emotional struggles.
Thoughtfully written. I really applaud her honest self-revelations that are filled with both harmony and discord. At times there is Too Much Information about her difficult relations with men. It’s a story of pain AND joy in her battle to feel/be worthy.
It’s poetic and insightful.
