How to Build a Girl – British humor and satire – $1.99 0 comments
As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Read the full disclosure here.
 

It’s 1990. Johanna Morrigan, fourteen, has shamed herself so badly on local TV that she decides that there’s no point in being Johanna anymore and reinvents herself as Dolly Wilde—fast-talking, hard-drinking Gothic hero and full-time Lady Sex Adventurer. She will save her poverty-stricken Bohemian family by becoming a writer—like Jo in Little Women, or the Bröntes—but without the dying young bit.
By sixteen, she’s smoking cigarettes, getting drunk and working for a music paper. She’s writing pornographic letters to rock-stars, having all the kinds of sex with all kinds of men, and eviscerating bands in reviews of 600 words or less.
But what happens when Johanna realizes she’s built Dolly with a fatal flaw? Is a box full of records, a wall full of posters, and a head full of paperbacks, enough to build a girl after all?

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Read the full disclosure here.
 

Michael Lang, the mastermind and creative genius who brought Woodstock to life, narrates the story of this cultural touchstone in music history. He began producing concerts and shows in the mid-’60s, organising Miami Pop in May 1968, then one of the first festivals of its kind. Miami Pop helped Lang create the blueprint for Woodstock, and the story of his long journey to and through three days of peace, love, and music has never before appeared in print.
Lang’s memories alone make a uniquely rich, personal portrait of the festival, but his access to the people who were there and the stories they share are equally remarkable, and equally fresh. Buy the book for $1.99 today.

Girls Like Us – Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon–And the Journey of a Generation – $1.99 0 comments
As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Read the full disclosure here.
 

Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon remain among the most enduring and important women in popular music. Each woman is distinct. Carole King is the product of outer-borough, middle-class New York City; Joni Mitchell is a granddaughter of Canadian farmers; and Carly Simon is a child of the Manhattan intellectual upper crust.
They collectively represent, in their lives and their songs, a great swath of American girls who came of age in the late 1960s. Their stories trace the arc of the now mythic sixties generation—female version—but in a bracingly specific and deeply recalled way, far from cliché.
The history of the women of that generation has never been written—until now, through their resonant lives and emblematic songs. Buy it today for only $1.99.
