When singer, musician, and broadcast journalist Malka Marom had the opportunity to interview Joni Mitchell in 1973, she was eager to reconnect with the performer she’d first met late one night in 1966 at a Yorkville coffeehouse. More conversations followed over the next four decades of friendship, and it was only after Joni and Malka completed their last recorded interview, in 2012, that Malka discovered the heart of their discussions: the creative process.

In Joni Mitchell: In Her Own Words, Joni and Malka follow this thread through seven decades of life and art, discussing the influence of Joni’s childhood, love and loss, playing dives and huge festivals, acclaim and criticism, poverty and affluence, glamorous triumphs and tragic mistakes…

This riveting narrative, told in interviews, lyrics, paintings, and photographs, is shared in the hope of illuminating a timeless body of work and inspiring others.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The book, which includes photographs and reproductions of Mitchell’s paintings, makes for a compelling narrative of the creative life and is recommended for both Mitchell fans and for music lovers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell would feel comfortable unleashing her inner demons only in a format like this: Her longtime friend and colleague Malka Marom—who met Mitchell for the first time in 1966—conducts a course of interviews over several years, serving more as Mitchell’s confidante than interlocutor. At times, the women come off like a chatty coffee klatch, freely dishing and swapping intimacies, a tone that may leave listeners feeling like they’re outside of the conversation. But Carrington MacDuffie, a vocalist in her own right, carries the load well, capturing the pair’s chummy tone as they swap heavily female-centric insights and engage in poetic free flights. Given Mitchell’s well-known shy nature, this is the closest her fans are going to get to a tell-all bio anytime soon.”
