Spine faintly creased, pages toned. 2003 Trade Paperback. xii, 371 pp. Janis Joplin died in 1970 at the age of 27. This edgy talented emotional drifter was as lost as anyone you will meet in either fiction or non-fiction. The singer Janis Joplin's childhood in a backwater Texas town, where her classmates punished her for her individuality, fueled the compulsion to shock which became her hallmark. This account of the forces that drove her through a short, impulsive life, to her death from a drug overdose at the age of 27, encompasses her binges, her egotism, her insecurities, and her affairs with figures such as Jim Morrison, Kris Kristofferson and Jimi Hendrix, and many lesbian lovers.
