A Woman Like Me: A Memoir free pdf Now in paperback, "an uninching and uncompromising look at a life lived across the tracks from fame . . ." ("Detroit Free Press")
As a teenager in Detroit, Bettye LaVette scored a hit single with "My Man--He's a Lovin' Man." But by twenty, she had faded into obscurity, and bad luck repeatedly sabotaged her career. Then, aft er forty years of singing in clubs, her unforgettable performances at the 2008 Kennedy Center Honors and at President Obama's preinaugural concert put her back in the spotlight. A chronicle of LaVette's incredible life, "A Woman Like Me" is a poignant, brazen, take-no-prisoners memoir as thrilling and fearless as her music.
