Love triangles and anxiety. This is Lesley Gore's first and long overdue biography, which details her meteoric rise to fame, her devastating fall from popularity and struggle for relevance in the 1970s, and her reemergence as a potent songwriter, political activist, and camp icon. The biography was put together over five years of research and interviews. The biography reveals how each decade of her astonishing fifty-year career affected and contributed to her music, as well as behind-the-scenes tales about the creation of her famous songs, dispels or explains common career misconceptions, and situates her remarkable life and times in historical perspective.
