PRLog (Press Release) - Nov. 13, 2012 - Janis Ian’s autobiography, Society’s Child: my autobiography, won accolades from its first day on the streets in 2008.

“Janis Ian’s songs cut close to the bone. So does her autobiography,” said George R.R. Martin, author of the bestselling Song of Ice and Fire series.

“A splendid retelling of a major life! Janis Ian is a survivor, and her book is an illuminating and inspiring read,” said Anne McCaffrey, bestselling author of the Pern series and The ship Who Sang.

Now Ian’s autobiography is available in markets around the world, published by Lucky Bat Books® in both ebook—with links to Janis Ian’s songs [listen to them on her site, too: http://www.janisian.com/albums/bestof.php]—and in print, making her popular book convenient for purchase by all of her fans, both in North America and around the world.

In her book, Ian reveals the story of her life, from her first days on the stage and her terrifying introduction to fame when her song, “Society’s Child”, challenged the country’s racism. She was “hounded offstage for singing her taboo-busting lyrics,” is how Oprah describes the moment.  Janis Ian tells how frightened she was, a 15-year-old singer new to the stage and facing an audience chanting racial slurs, shaking their fists and, at least temporarily, stopping the show.

Ian has never shirked from telling her truth, in both song and life. She is a survivor of abuse, as well as of persecution by the IRS. But her story is more than the story of survival. It’s also the story of a life lived amongst the luminaries of her time —Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix—the high joy of music played with the best of the best.

As Ian says, though, don’t think for a minute that the story is over; it isn’t, not by a longshot. Today, she plays to soldout crowds all across the United States and Internationally, too. She plays her old music and her new, writing songs for today’s top artists, for Bette Midler, Celine Dion, and John Mellancamp amongst others.

At the same time, Ian has made a name for herself as a writer, having written columns for The Advocate and Performing Songwriter. And she edited, with Mike Resnick, a science fiction anthology, STARS, Original Stories Based on the Songs of Janis Ian, a book that brought together 30 top science fiction writers, including Orson Scott Card, Joe Haldeman, Jane Yolen, Gregory Benford and more.

Published by Lucky Bat Books [http://luckybatbooks.com] in 2012, the foreign edition of Society’s Child: my autobiography by Janis Ian, is available on Amazon in print and ebook in all markets outside North America and also in ebook for international markets by Kobo and other online sellers. Look for “Author’s Preferred Edition” on the cover. The North American version is also still available online and in bookstores, published by Tarcher.
