Yaffe Discusses Reckless Child with PBS
Arts and Sciences Assistant Professor David Yaffe was interviewed by PBS News Hour about his new biography, “Reckless Daughter: A Portrait of Joni Mitchell,” which is a deep-dive into the artist’s life.
“Well, I’ll start by saying that Joni never likes being genderized, which is a word she uses. But Blue, over time, has this legend about it,” says Yaffe. “And there’s nothing like any of it but especially the darkest songs on there, the title track, for example.”
