Take Another Little Piece of My Heart: A Groupie Grows Up
Updated to include the escapades of the last 16 years of the "queen of the groupies," this rollicking, piquant, and sometimes heartbreaking follow-up to "I'm With the Band" documents Pamela Des Barres' struggles with postmodern marriage and motherhood. Covering the middle-passage years of the baby-boom generation, this biography portrays a hilarious, inspiring tussle with life's adventures and adversities, from acting with Sylvester Stallone and dancing with Bob Dylan to making ends meet by rooming with struggling celebrities and selling cosmetics. For all its famous names and insider lore, this is a survivor's story--about the anguish of coping with loved ones' addictions, suffering divorce and loss, and the joys and terrors of raising a gifted son--told with grace, charm, and a generous sense of humor.
