Of course, Carly Simon and Cat Stevens got together (the song "Anticipation" was written about him) and then later married James Taylor, so I crossed them both off my list. (Their loss!) Carly Simon's childhood (her dad was the "Simon" in Simon and Shuster), her infamous battles with stage fright, her marriage and divorce--I loved her music and was fascinated by her life.
This past Christmas, from my daughter, I got a copy of Simon's memoir. While my husband sat next to me, I opened the gift, squealed in delight, held the book up, and my daughter and I talked about the book for a couple of minutes.
I've only just begun--to read it.
This past week, my husband said he'd heard a book being talked about on
Yep. You got it. The Carly Simon book.
Since I have an extra copy, my husband suggested I give it away on my blog... which is exactly what I'm going to do.
So, leave a comment. If you include John Sebastian's address, or Mr. Miya's (my 7th grade English teacher), I'll put your name in the hat an extra 1,872 times. I'll draw a name at the end of the month.
Cat Stevens singing "My Lady D'Arbanville," a song
about the actress Patti D'Arbanville... I guess if
I had not crossed him off my list, he might have
written a song about me... ;)
