This is the heavily illustrated memoir of the underground, feminist cartoonist, who fought the establishment and misogyny while running a fashion boutique and mingling with rock stars.
From dressing Mama Cass to being pelted with jelly babies as she helped photograph the Rolling Stones’s first US tour, from drunken New York nights spent with Jim Morrison to producing the very first all-woman comic book, the Lady of the Canyon takes no prisoners.
