Product Details

Praise

In these pages Shirley Collins completes her comeback, reclaiming her rightful place in the English folk revival from those who placed obstacles in her way.—New Statesman

There is music in Collins’s writing too. When Jimi Hendrix visits her and her first husband in London (‘I can see why John married you’), it sings lustily. She also writes tenderly of tragedy; the section about her sister and musical collaborator Dolly’s death is particularly moving. Another strong female voice to add to the chorus of music history, then, going against the grain, so tunefully.
