Publisher Description

As the founder of Righteous Babe Records, the award-winning recording artist Ani DiFranco has never let her career succumb to "business as usual". Her music - rhythmically percussive guitar playing, insistent vocals, and a willingness to address both sexual and social politics - defies neat categories. It draws on folk and rock, as well as jazz, funk, hip-hop, experimental and electronic sounds, and much more. She has inspired countless musicians to rewrite the rules of the recording industry by striving for self-sufficiency and refusing to allow art to be subsumed by commerce.

DiFranco converses with Anthony DeCurtis, contributing editor at Rolling Stone magazine.

Perfectly imperfect human

Ani Difranco is simply the most inspiring female in my generation. She's wonderful, fantastic, and terrifically human. To say I love her would be to diminish how I feel. She is Ani, and there is only one.

Ani Difranco At the 92nd Street Y (Unabridged Nonfiction)

I have been a huge HUGE fan of Ani's music for about 11 years now. When I was 15 going on 16 my b-friend of 2 yrs left me with no warning. I was so depressed; my friend lent me two CDs of Ani's, "Dilate" and "Not a Pretty Girl". Ever since then, she's been my idol, my heroine!!! The best all-around artist (the prodigy of self-expression). She's the most awesome individual who's works never cease to amaze me. I just bought this audio book. I haven't heard the whole thing yet, but I am ABSOLUTELY sure that it will be amongst my many vaulued items in my Ani D. collection!!!! I love this self-made artist, CEO, poet, storyteller, songwriter, guitar, drum, piano, mandolin, voice, etc "player". She's freaking fascinating!!! What a Revolutionary....and a "feminine revolutionary" at that! Buy it...it's only .99 cents! And 100% profit goes to her own record label she started at 18, so buy it!!! You won't be dissapointed! I NEVER am. Love, Emily Grace Myers of Gainesville, FL 10/02/09
