Editorial reviews (3 reviews)


King, now 70, has finally published a memoir. A Natural Woman is written with the same friendly, chatty, warm and open tone with which she stitched her album Tapestry.

The book borrows its title from the soul hit that Goffin and King wrote for Aretha Franklin, "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman."

In straightforward prose, King tells the story of Carol Klein, the daughter of Eastern European Jewish immigrants in Brooklyn. Her educated and artistically inclined mother and firefighting father gave her confidence in her early years. Things started to go wrong when her younger brother Richard was diagnosed as profoundly deaf and “severely retarded” in 1951 and placed in “a facility suitable for his needs”.
