The Life of Karen CarpenterBook - 2010
Karen Carpenter was the instantly recognizable lead singer of the Carpenters. The top-selling American musical act of the 1970s, they delivered the love songs that defined a generation. But that's only part of Karen's story. This book reveals Karen's heartbreaking struggles with her mother, brother, and husband; the intimate disclosures she made to her closest friends; her love for playing drums and her frustrated quest for solo stardom; and the ups and downs of her treatment for anorexia nervosa, the disease which led to her death at thirty-two years of age.--From book jacket.
