Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll

Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson, read by the authors. HarperAudio, unabridged, digital download, 9 hrs., $24.99 ISBN 978-0-06-224370-6
As founding members of the rock band Heart, Ann and Nancy Wilson achieved musical stardom with hit songs like “Crazy on You” and “Barracuda.” Now the sisters’ firsthand account of their lives and musical careers takes center stage—with Ann and Nancy narrating this compelling audio edition. Despite hailing from a suburb in Washington State, Ann and Nancy got their start in Canada—a country that would eventually claim them as its own. In fact, the accent of this adoptive nation can be heard in their voices as they reminisce about the past, with stories about Marlon Brando’s eyes, Mick Jagger’s lips, and Def Leppard’s party prowess. Their respective readings reveal an almost gloomy longing for happier days past, but also wisdom that they garnered after enduring the ravages of rock ’n’ roll success. Narrated in gritty, smoky bass tones, this is an enthralling listen that will have fans captivated for hours. An It Books hardcover. (Sept.)
