By Myra Friedman

Electrifying, highly acclaimed, intensely personal, Buried Alive is the definitive biography of the legendary queen of rock, Janis Joplin. It is a stunning panorama of the turbulent decade when hers was the rallying voice of a generation which lost itself in her music and found itself in her words. From her small hometown of Port Arthur, Texas, to San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury; from smoky nightclub to super-charged concert hall; from the glitter of worldwide fame to her bottomed-out world of alcohol, drugs and sex ... Buried Alive captures all the fire and anguish of an immortal, immensely talented and troubled performer who devoured everything the rock scene had to offer in a fatal attempt to make peace with herself and her era.
