Summary More Room in a Broken Heart is a love song to an American icon -- the first full-length biography of Carly Simon, from an acclaimed music journalist who has known her for decades. Carly Simon has won two Grammys and an Academy Award, and her albums have sold more than forty million copies. Her music has touched countless lives since her debut in the 1970s, yet her own life story has remained unpublished. Tapping private archives, family interviews, and a forty-year friendship with the legend herself, Stephen Davis at last captures Carly Simon's extraordinary journey from shy teenager to superstar. From the Bob Dylan turning point that launched her career to the real story behind "You're So Vain"; from Carly's stage fright to her romantic involvements with Mick Jagger, Warren Beatty and Cat Stevens; and from her ordeal with breast cancer to her recent financial and spiritual crises, fans will see the Carly Simon that was hidden from the cameras ... Along the way, Davis vividly takes readers back to some of the most powerful eras in American music history and delivers a tribute worthy of the artist and her loyal fans, who know that nobody does it better than Carly Simon.
