Janis Ian is so remarkable. She was so young when she wrote this, and then she had that amazing comeback in her early twenties. A true genius.
Avatar 3:16pm djsheilab:

John from Florham Park—I definitely play quite a bit of Nina, but Trouble is your gal for the vast, deep landscape of Miss Simone.

Janis Ian was a classmate of Laura Nyro at the School of Music and Art in the early sixties.

You should read it Michael. It’s exquisitely Eritrean, unflinching and a wonderful evocation of an age. She did not have it easy, partly because of that early success.
