Who Really Cares; A statement, not a question. Sep 17, 2006
I discovered this poetry collection when I first began looking for the corresponding namesake record album that was almost as difficult to find as the book. It demonstrates the same genious that has been evident in Janis Ian for four decades. I was very happy when this book became available once again. Everyone who has been touched by Janis' music, and loves her like I do should read this book.
Still a great book of poems! Dec 15, 2002
Anyone who enjoyed the first time around of Janis Ian's poetry,will enjoy this edition even more! All the original poetry is included along with some new ones. Janis still has it and we still love her!

Janis put this book together while in her teenage incarnation. Some of the poems made it into lyrics, but in neither case can I make any sense of them. Alot of teen angst and anger comes through, to the point of being painful. Being as I adore Janis' talent, this book was painful to read. I'm glad she chose songwriting. However, with the talent and depth of her lyrics today, maybe she should try poetry again. It would be awesome.
