Joan Jett

The story of Joan Jett, as presented in the book Joan Jett by Todd Oldham, is the perfect example of how an “official” biography should go.

Yes, technically, this is probably an autobiography. Oldham took interviews with Jett from 1981 to the present, and mixed them up with an interview he did with the rock star, and that is the text of the book. Aside from the introduction from Bikini Kill’s Kathleen Hanna and the bit where her manager Kenny Laguna talks about his relationship with Jett for the entirety of her solo career, the whole book is in the artist’s words.
