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

Excellent narrator, fascinating subject
Second best to Vol. 1 of the new Beatles biography
She does everything right--lovely voice, and she manages to capture Joni's voice and spirit not by trying to imitate her but by somehow giving the right inflections with the right energy. Very unpretentious and engaging performance.
