Only girl i need in my life

John Jacobs's short slave narrative, A True Tale of Slavery, published in London in , adds a brother's perspective to Harriet Jacobs's own autobiography. It is an exciting addition to this now classic work, as John Jacobs presents additional historical information about family life so well described already by his sister. Importantly, it presents the people, places, and events Harriet Jacobs wrote about from the different perspective of a male narrator.

A raucous and vividly dishy memoir by the only woman writer on the masthead of Rolling Stone Magazine in the early Seventies. With irreverent humor and remarkable nerve, Green spills stories of sparring with Dennis Hopper on a film junket in the desert, scandalizing fans of David Cassidy and spending a legendary evening on a waterbed in Robert F.

Kennedy Jr. In the seventies, Green was there as Hunter S. Thompson crafted Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas , and now, with a distinctly gonzo female voice, she reveals her side of that tumultuous time in America. Brutally honest and bold, Green reveals what it was like to be the first woman granted entry into an iconic boys' club.

Pulling back the curtain on Rolling Stone magazine in its prime, The Only Girl is a stunning tribute to a bygone era and a publication that defined a generation. Get A Copy. Hardcover , pages.

Through a chronology with significant flashbacks and forwards, Robin takes you through not just her life but the changes in the career side of creating popular culture. Serendipitously according to Green, and at significant times she seems to be serrendipitously near the next big thing.

The descriptions of events show the culture of Rolling Stone, the role of women in it, and how the all male but for Green writers jockeyed for space, covers and general position in the magazine. While her name was on the masthead, she could only afford a wreck of a car.

This career ends after a Robert Kennedy Jr. Had Green found the root of the Kennedy mystique? Since she could not until this book write about what her experience, Jann Wenner said it was time to part company. She did not have the voice to speak up for herself. This was a downer, but she has luck, pluck and talent. Through this chapter of her life, you learn the creative, business and career dimensions of writing for TV.

You get a glimpse of how egos and office politics work in this rarified and well paid world. She is sexually active and unabashed about it. How many women can and will publish, as a matter of fact, that they have had hundreds of men?

Other personal areas have the same matter of fact treatment such as her relationship with her mother and how she felt during and after significant relationships. While this is not a great book and probably not the best of her writing her insights, sewn throughout the book, are worth the read. Aug 21, Janelle She Reads with Cats rated it really liked it Shelves: from-publisher , nonfiction , autobiography-memoir-biography. This is a coming-of-age memoir about Robin Green who had an inside look into Rolling Stone magazine in the early seventies - so of course, I had to read this.

Green was the only female writer listed on the masthead in those days, which is quite impressive. Her detailed account is interesting, picaresque, lively, witty, engaging, and irreverent. I used to collect various editions and one of them I still have is the cover story of David Cassidy where he bares all for the famous photographer Annie Leibovitz.

And you guessed it, Robin Green wrote this piece. She spent five days on the road with him and wrote the controversial cover story. Cassidy wanted to shed his innocent image of teen idol as he was devoured by every young girl who idolized him on the Partridge Family.

He wanted to shake things up and this piece surely did. Sep 29, Brianna Westervelt rated it really liked it. My only complaint is that she knew too many Davids. View 1 comment. Feb 01, Iris Dorbian rated it did not like it. I couldn't finish this book and I'm so disappointed because I was really drawn to the subject matter or rather what I thought was going to be the subject matter.

Judging from the title, I truly thought this was going to be about a pioneer female journalist's adventures and misadventures during the early years of Rolling Stone magazine. Actually, that constitutes a small portion of the book.

The rest is devoted to Robin Green's rise and fall and subsequent rise again, this time as a successful I couldn't finish this book and I'm so disappointed because I was really drawn to the subject matter or rather what I thought was going to be the subject matter.

The rest is devoted to Robin Green's rise and fall and subsequent rise again, this time as a successful TV writer. Actually, that narrative is very interesting and considering, she wrote for one of my all-time favorite TV shows, "The Sopranos," the premise is even more compelling. You know, I don't mind she was a product of the 60s counterculture and all the attitudes and mores that went with it, which include unbridled promiscuity, drug-taking, hedonism, etc.

That doesn't bother me because I expect that to be part of the narrative considering the times Green grew up in and the free-wheeling peace and love ethos espoused by Rolling Stone magazine in its early years. What I didn't like was how insufferably elitist, status-obsessed and judgmental Green is. Unless you have money and live in LA or some urban hub like Manhattan, Green has nothing but condescension and contempt for you.

You're a loser. Another thing that really irked me was her sexual boasting. Again, I'm no prude and I don't really care she slept around during the s and the "Me" decade.

What I don't like is how she insists on listing all of her sexual conquests which include some married men , replete with explicit details on their appendages, as if we're supposed to be impressed by how many men she snagged in her prime and how hot and alluring she was I could do without the nonstop references to how everyone thought she had such a great body.

And yes, I agree with another reader who brought this up: Why do we need to know how hung college-age Robert Kennedy Jr.

Why, for what purpose? How does this move the story along? It doesn't. It only serves as raw material for Green to throw out there to show to the reader how desirable she was in her prime. Eat your heart out. This book came out recently and I assume Green, who's in her 70s, wrote this not too long ago, which makes me think that despite her age, she still seems very much like a spoiled, narcissistic girl, psychologically frozen in time when it comes to her attitudes and behavior the boasting, the constant comparisons and the nasty digs at others to prop herself up, is clearly a byproduct of some deeply seated insecurity which she obviously never successfully exorcised via therapy.

The real shame of this book is that there really is a good story here--it's just not on these pages. Mar 17, Tracy Towley rated it did not like it. This book is like if you're at a party and you start chatting with someone and initially think, "Wow, this is an interesting person, how fortunate I am to meet them! I did not like this book, is what I'm getting at. I'm sure there exists a person more annoying and less self-aware than this author but I have been fortunate enough not to meet them.

Jun 12, Marika rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction-that-reads-like-fiction. Let that sink in. Robin has written a witty, irreverent memoir of that crazy time in American history when women were just beginning to crack the glass ceiling. She holds nothing back, not even her own skeletons.
