A beautifully written biography of three women who changed a decade and altered the lives of a generation. Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon were icons of their time and remain so today. They entered a music industry that was male-dominated, even at times outright mysogynistic, and helped reshape the musical landscape through their talent, charisma and sheer determination. In doing so, the public took them to their hearts. This is also an evocative, utterly engrossing portrait of a the 1960s, a time of ferment and discord, a time of upheaval and radically changing values - particularly for women. In I Feel the Earth Move, Sheila Weller interveaves King, Mitchell and Simon's contrasting stories, each one surprising and gripping, with a history of the '60s. Sheila Weller, a acclaimed journalist and writer, perfectly catches the spirit of the time as well as the characters of its protagonists. An essential book for all those who care about the music, personalities and ethos of the '60s.
