Short Synopsis
This riveting narrative, told in interviews and lyrics, is shared in the hope of illuminating a timeless body of work and inspiring others.

Full Synopsis
When singer, musician, and broadcast journalist Malka Marom had the opportunity to interview Joni Mitchell in 1973, she was eager to reconnect with the performer that she'd first met late one night in 1966 at a Yorkville coffeehouse. More conversations followed over the next four decades of friendship, and it was only after Joni and Malka completed their last recorded interview, in 2012, that Malka discovered the heart of their discussions: the creative process.

In Joni Mitchell: In Her Own Words, Joni and Malka follow this thread through seven decades of life and art, discussing the influence of Joni’s childhood, love and loss, playing dives and huge festivals, acclaim and criticism, poverty and affluence, glamorous triumphs and tragic mistakes.

"Carrington MacDuffie, a vocalist in her own right, carries the load well, capturing the pair's chummy tone as they swap heavily female-centric insights and engage in poetic free flights." ---AudioFile

"Mitchell's story will resonate on a universal level, just as her timeless music has already done." ---Library Journal Starred Review

"The gifted, adventurous musician talks as brilliantly as she writes and sings." ---Kirkus

"The audiobook is sprinkled with recitations of some of Mitchell's lyrics." ---Library Journal Audio Review
