In short, More Room in a Broken Heart is a very good book indeed. Which is not to say that the reader does not come away with a few small irritants to report.

Synopsis

A love song to an American icon: the first full-length biography of Carly Simon, from an acclaimed music journalist who has known her for decades

Carly Simon has won two Grammys and an Academy Award, and her albums have sold more than forty million copies. She has touched countless lives and is considered an icon in 1970s music, yet her own life story has remained a mystery. Tapping private archives, family interviews, and a forty-year friendship with the legend herself, Stephen Davis at last captures Carly Simon’s extraordinary journey from shy teenager to superstar, covering everything her fans want to know, including:

The real story behind “You’re So Vain” Romances with Mick Jagger, Warren Beatty, and Cat Stevens Surviving breast cancer Her recent financial and spiritual crisesAlong the way, Davis vividly takes readers back to some of the most powerful eras in American music history and delivers a tribute worthy of the artist. The updated paperback edition includes two brand-new photos, as well as a note to the reader and selected sources.
