“I’m trying to spend the rest of the year getting completed with the book. I’m not sure how I’ll sell it, either as a memoir or an autobiography. I have an agent. It seems like everyone is writing memoirs or everyone in the music business is. Hopefully, by the time mine comes it will have died down. But this is not as (crucial) as the writing of the story.”
Asked whether writing a book is like writing songs, Carly responded:
“Yes. It’s like baking. Writing books is like a combination of writing a song and a letter. I love writing songs. It’s my love.”
This new book is most likely her way of setting the record straight after the highly problematic More Room in a Broken Heart: The True Adventures of Carly Simon “by” Stephen Davis.
Carly also talks about how the music industry turned their back on her when she was diagnosed with cancer, her struggles with stuttering versus stage fright, and more.
