Carly Simon is a household name. She was a staple of the 70’s and 80’s Billboard charts and famously married to James Taylor with whom she has two children, but there’s so much more to the story behind the headlines and famously cryptic lyrics. Boys In The Trees is a rhapsodic, beautifully compelling memoir of a young woman’s coming of age amid the glamorous literati and intelligentsia of Manhattan (her father was Richard Simon, co-founder of Simon & Schuster), the pain of loss and betrayal early on in life, and the strength to leave that all behind and forge a path of art, music and love in the golden age of folk and rock.At once an insider’s look into a life lived in the spotlight, a lyric reflection on a particular time in our culture’s history, and a beautiful memoir about the pains and joys of love and art as soaring as Patti Smith’s JUST KIDS, and shocking as Keith Richard’s Life, Boys In The Trees is the story Carly Simon has long been waiting to tell the world.
