9780061051401: Chasing Down the Dawn: Stories from the Road

AIready a legendary performer in the music industry, Jewel has been writing poetry, short stories, and prose since she was young. She's also a bestselling author, poet, and actress. Now this uniquely talented artist opens the pages of her most intimate journals to give readers, fans, and friends a glimpse of her magical, turbulent life.

Drawn from life on the road during her Spirit World Tour, Jewel captures unforgettable moments from her childhood in Alaska, her beginnings as a struggling artist, and her challenges as a daughter, sister, and woman. With acutely observed, eloquent depictions of the musicians, lovers, bikers, strangers, celebrities, and characters that inhabit her world -- and illustrated throughout with candid, never-before-seen photos of Jewel and her own photojournalism and drawings -- Chasing Down the Dawn is more than a collection of vignettes, observations, and stories. It is a finely wrought mosaic in prose and poetry, set to the rhythms of life.

About the Author:

A bestselling writer of poetry and prose, Jewel is also an actress and performer. She has recorded four bestselling albums and also starred in Ang Lee's film Ride with the Devil. Her first book, A Night Without Armor, was a New York Times bestseller. She lives in California.

From AudioFile:

The popular singer-songwriter's dedication to her craft is apparent in her narration of CHASING DOWN THE DAWN. Taken from her journals, these vignettes unveil memories from Jewel's childhood in Alaska, her struggles studying her craft and working in the music industry, the intensity of life on the road, and her personal relationships. Just like her music, her prose is filled with a rhythm that comes through in her reading. Jewel narrates her stories with confidence and maturity, but without patronizing the listener. As the excerpts that are read take place at various times in her life and in different areas of the world, the transitions could have been improved with the use of music.
