woke up at 4 to read the 2nd chapter of your book and ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting! I was so heavy eyed but could not put it down!

I've been to California a few yrs ago...did the whole 'Hollywood Blvd'/Hollywood Sign, get on THE PRICE IS RIGHT, JAY LENO, WILL AND GRACE SHOW (at the time) and drove around many of the roads mentioned in the book...so kept me interested that way too. Brentwood...home of Joan Crawford~~but cripes, your mom made Joan look like a saint! I have to ask...she seemed bipolar or definitely had some UNDIAGNOSED disorder, Im thinking. Or 'schizophrenic'? IDK...Anyway...you really pulled me into your story and I just felt so bad for you and your brother. I just got done reading an autobiography of Marianne Faithful too...so it was so random that she was mentioned on the one page. (of course not unlikely...in that she too had a relationship w/Mick)....
It would have been a crime had you NOT told your story. Im glad you made it out alive! Peace be with you...
If you're ever in the Paradise PA are/Lancaster PA give me a hollar. maryj41@earthlink.net :-)

I just finished reading your book in one sitting. I wish I'd had your guts growing up instead of leading such a timid life. You're pretty amazing.

Catherine, greetings from Australia, I hope you are having a lovely week. I stumbled upon your book by chance, and i'm honestly glad I did! I was surfing the web looking at arts and design blogs when I came upon a web blog and saw a review of your book. I was instantly interested, as I am a songwriter/composer and thought I must read this... and now! I eventually bought a copy and once it arrived I read the whole book in one sitting. I can assure you that I have never done that before at all, ever! It was an exceptional read and one that took me on your journey from the first to the last page. Emotive, enticing, heartbreaking yet very optimistic and forgiving. I do hope you continue writing and that this book reaches many people. All the best, take care. Troy :)

Hey Catherine--

Your book inspired me...your Phoenix spirit and your faith of spirit and strength have held you in good stead. You rock! What an amazing story...my husband says you are the "Forest Gump" of the 60's/70's culture/rock scene!


Keep on truckin gal! Thanks for sharing!

Hey Catherine, just finished your book & it was great. Your life has been amazing. As a working musician myself it was particularly interesting. Your journey was and is an inspiration to us all. Good luck and keep up the good work. Thanks to all of you folks who dig our music and support us. We love you.

I'm only 3/4 of the way through the book { but I only started on it less than 12hrs. ago ;)} but I had to come on here and praise this honest, emotional, raw, wonderful, etc. book.
But I do have one question...
Why in the he// was I able to buy it at a $1.ooTree store?!?!? I would've gladly paid full price!!!

My wife was reading a book and kept laughing out loud or cry "Oh nooo!", or "Unbelievable... I can't believe it", "WOW". She kept telling me, you have to read this, you will really dig this. I read it non stop. Thank you for such a great story and for a unique view into the lives of artists that shaped our generations consciousness.

I came up going to Bill Graham's Fillmore, Winterland and festival productions in San Francisco, so I was fortunate to have seen all these musicians and bands as they broke onto the scene. Very intensely nostalgic to relive those times through your eyes.

Would make a great movie. You know the sound track already kills. Diane Keaton could play the "Mature Catherine". LOL What a trip to think how you could cast it.

I am not sure I can write anything new after reading through some of the wonderful comments here. So I will just say thank you.

It's amazing how Mackenzie, Tatum, Valerie, Brooke, Carrie Fischer and many more all write books, But Catherine James
tells a story. One rich with warmth, forgiveness, desire, hope and faith. An honor to have had her share her story.
Thank you, Catherine.

I loved the book... I can't even describe how I felt when I read the part in the book where Catherine goes back to take a look at the cottage in CT and she describes how she knew the young girl and her blond baby boy who once lived there... talk about tears flowing...

And when she lost Mimi...

Catherine James, you are a class act, lady! Cheers!

this book was pure pleasure for me. i am of the same generation, and roughly the same age as the author. especially interesting was the description of the cottage in connecticut. i spent 6 years working 3 days a week in cornwall bridge, connecticut. this was in the 80's, and it was and still is peaceful and beautiful. granted, many are second homes of nyc people, but that doesn't deter from the beauty. thank you catherine for a fascinating story. william
