society's child

5 of 7
By Janis Ian

Memoirs and autobiographies read by the author make for such intimate, compelling audiobooks; you get to hear the real voice of the real human being behind the real story (Think about: Bossypants, by Tina Fey and The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls). But Society's Child—Janis Ian's look at the turbulent, eye-opening 1960s—goes a step deeper by incorporating her songs and guitar music into the recording.
