Boys in the Trees: A Memoir by Carly Simon, 376 pages
Carly Simon is the 3rd child and daughter of Richard and Andrea Simon. A son, Peter, was born a few years after Carly. Her father was a co-founder of the publishing company Simon & Schuster, though he was ousted in later life.
Both Carly and her father suffered from anxiety and depression. I have always admired Carly Simon and enjoyed her music and never really considered she has the same worries and demons as everyone else. The book is a very candid look at her life and marriage to James Taylor. No surprise, she has a way with words.
