"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
From the rolling wheat fields of Southern Alberta to the glitz and glam of Hollywood, from the days when she was destined to become an Olympic athlete to the moment she became the first openly lesbian artist to win an American Music Award, 'k. d. lang: All You Get Is Me' traces k. d.'s path from college drop-out to pop superstar. Exhaustively researched and compellingly narrated, this is the story of Kathy Dawn Lang's meteoric rise: how her seemingly perfect childhood was shattered when her father walked out on the family; how she stumbled accidentally into country music; her work with Roy Orbison, Owen Bradley, Anne Murray and filmmaker Percy Adlon; and the night the most important man in her life, her friend, mentor and soul-mate, Drifter, died in a bar-room brawl.
Uncovering k. d.'s deepest emotions, from a commitment to animal rights that threatened to ruin her career to her coming to terms with a sexuality that made her an unwitting poster girl for the lesbian and gay community, 'k. d. lang' is the definitive biography.
"Elvis is alive, and is she ever beautiful"
"Once in a while, someone comes along who refuses to be stuffed into the accepted pigeon-hole, who defies the limits of category, and who takes a popular form and stretches it beyond what was thought possible. Usually you can't get away with this unless you are very, very good. k. d. lang is very very good"
"k. d. lang is the type of politically radical vegetarian lesbian defender of wildlife you'd want to bring home to your mother"
