According to the authors introduction, Raffaele Quirino discovered Ani Difranco fairly late, surprisingly during the current release of "Little Plastic Castle", so you have to wonder then, what was the author's intent when writing a book about her so soon thereafter? I didn't know whether to be appauled by his "lack there of", or to be intrigued by the fact that he clenched onto Ani so suddendly.

Through the Righteous Babe Foundation DiFranco has backed grassroots .

Through the Righteous Babe Foundation DiFranco has backed grassroots cultural and political organizations supporting causes including abortion rights and LGBT visibility  . Scot Fisher, Righteous Babe label president and DiFranco's longtime manager, has been a longtime advocate of the preservation movement in Buffalo. In 1999 he and DiFranco purchased a decaying church on the verge of demolition in downtown Buffalo and began the lengthy process of restoring it.

An intriguing biography of Ani DiFranco-fiercely independent and outrageous singer-songwriter and "executive" of her independent label, Righteous Babe Records.

Filled with broad generalizations and both factual and grammatical inaccuracies, even as what Quirino would call a "DW," I had much difficulty suffering through this book. My fingers twitch, even now, fighting the urge to take up a red pen, correct all the errors, and send it back! Quirino seems to have started this book without a clear idea of where he wanted to take it, and reading his own posting here, he still doesn't seem sure--While stating he never intended to write an "official" Ani book, the book itself clearly states it is intended as "a serious critical and biographical study of the music and career of Ani Difranco." It reads much like a well-intentioned, although not so well-planned college paper. While lamenting the usual Ani/Alanis comparison, in several places in the book he perpetuates the stereotype. In one section he does little more than list her contemporaries. (Notice how many are on the Columbia label) Much of the book is devoted to a song-by-song discography--I won't call it a critical discussion--it's more of a summation of the obvious. Cliffs Notes would have done a better job here, people. If you've read even the most circulated interviews and articles, or spent any time online, unless you want a stabbing sense of dejavu, this isn't the book for you! Quirino does nothing in the title to discourage us from thinking this is any less than that much sought-after biography we'll probably never get. If "Zero Stars" were an option, I wouldn't have given it one. My advice: Save your money! If you truly want to know where the L'il Folksinger is coming from, study your current events and get yourself to a live show.
Okay, I think that Ani rocks... but this book completely does not do her justice. First of all, Raffaele, try getting lyrics right when you quote them. (* I even read a description where it said "Names, and Dates, and Places" instead of "Names, and Dates, and Times" for the opening song off "Puddle Dive"! If you can't even get the song titles right, think of how many other factual discrepancies there must be.) Plus, that whole section where he's describing various Ani fans (why they like her, why they've become disillusioned with her, etc.) -- not only was it was ridiculous, it was embarassing! Why would anyone care! I was excited to read this book, because I wanted a little insight into her songs and why they came about, but I am seriously considering returning my copy to the bookstore I work at. I'll leave it to Ani for the last word: "And everything I do is judged / And they mostly get it wrong, but oh, well."
This book was NOT total trash by any means, despite popular belief. True, he made his mistakes. Yes, there were errors. If there are fans that are unhappy with this book for one reason or another, maybe they should just go write their own...
I have been an Ani fan for years, and I appreciated the book for what it was - someone else's opinion. It was never stated that it was supposed to be a biography, so get over it.
I believe that the arthor's interpretations of the songs are not wrong. No one has the right to tell someone that their opinion and their feelings are wrong.
As an artist, I know what the intent and meaning of my work is. But it is completely and totally up to the viewer how they want to interpret it and how it makes them feel. The same thing goes for music, whether it is Ani's or any one else's. EVERYONE is allowed to form their own opinion as to how a song makes them feel or what it means to them. Period.
I think this book is something every Ani fan should give a chance. The fans who were interviewed for this book have a right to have their words read. It definately provides insight to the whole episode about Ani getting married (*amongst other things*), especially from a fan's point of view. Even though I do not agree with everyone's opinion in this book, I still respect it.
I think every Ani fan should give a little bit more respect to this book, and give it a chance to teach you something about what OTHER people think.
I was going to give this book 3 stars until I read in several reviews that Ani didn't approve of it being published. I was unaware of this, but, now I know. When I bought this book, I did not know much about Ani or her music. I had only heard a few of her albums, and knew almost nothing about her life. Now, after having finished the book and noticing many errors along the way (he called "Names And Dates And Times", "Names And Dates And Places", and called Alanis Morisettes song "Ironic", "Like Rain", as just a few examples) I am now wondering how much of that information was actually accurate. Needless to say, I didn't appreciate the fact that fans were categorized into two neat piles. I am sure many, if not most, Ani fans don't fit into either category (I certainly don't). We, as people, are more complex than a few pages can define. Also, most of the book consisted of an album-by-album, song-by-song "interpretation" of Ani's music. Ani has said herself that she is happiest when her music is interpreted at all diferent angles, and his generalizations about her beautiful and complex songs are not appreciated in my corner. I get so much more, both emotionally and intellectually, out of her songs than a few highly generalized paragraphs can describe. One thing, though, that I can give Mr. Quirino, is that he at least tried. Next time, he should try a little harder.
