✏Boys in the Trees Book Summary : Carly Simon's New York Times bestselling memoir, Boys in the Trees, reveals her remarkable life, beginning with her storied childhood as the third daughter of Richard L. Simon, the co-founder of publishing giant Simon & Schuster, her musical debut as half of The Simon Sisters performing folk songs with her sister Lucy in Greenwich Village, to a meteoric solo career that would result in 13 top 40 hits, including the #1 song "You're So Vain." She was the first artist in history to win a Grammy Award, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award, for her song "Let the River Run" from the movie Working Girl. The memoir recalls a childhood enriched by music and culture, but also one shrouded in secrets that would eventually tear her family apart. Simon brilliantly captures moments of creative inspiration, the sparks of songs, and the stories behind writing "Anticipation" and "We Have No Secrets" among many others. Romantic entanglements with some of the most famous men of the day fueled her confessional lyrics, as well as the unraveling of her storybook marriage to James Taylor.

If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. SUMMARYCarly Simon grew up third out of four children in a house filled with family and music. Many members of her father's family where musically inclined. While members of Carly's family were musicians by trade, Carly's father who owner of the publishing company Simon and Schuster. There were even weekly music practices held to which the children always tried to escape. Carly's parents were expecting a boy and planned to name him Carl, so when a beautiful baby girl arrived, they simply added a "Y." It was partly that expectation that made Carly feel like a disappointment to her father. She felt he always wished she was indeed Carl. Early on in life she felt a need to compete with her older sisters for attention and approval and soon learned that her sisters were the apples of daddy's eye. But Carly was the apple of her Uncle Pete's eye. He looked out for her and gave her encouragement, out of everyone in her family, her uncle was her favorite, and provided the father figure she missed in her own father. Their brother's nurse would adapt literature for mini plays that the girls would perform for their family and friends during the summers. It was during one of these performances that Carly's stutter presented itself, which became a consistent source of embarrassment well into adulthood. She was on stage about to say her line when she stumble over the words and ran off in embarrassment. Carly tried to find ways to hide it with techniques like changing words, coding in her diary, or excusing herself from the situation. While experimenting with techniques, she learned she could sing her words while at home. This was the first time she thought that maybe she could be a singer one day. Her childhood is when she began to write in her diary, something that would become an important item throughout her childhood and teenage years. It was a way she would be able to find release and cope with all the confusing feelings she was experiencing. Her stutter seemed to have no rhyme or reason behind it. What would trip her up one day would be easy as pie the next but something else would be difficult to articulate. As a young child she began experiencing sexual or semi sexual encounters with an older boy during the summers. She didn't realize at the time that their actions together (or his actions towards her) could be anything but appropriate. Her world was turned upside down when her parent's relationship began to fail, and her mother's lover moved into the family home. It was during this time that her father (Richard) began having health problems. When the lover (Romey) was deployed the parental relationship seemed to have gotten better, only to have her mother take an unexpected, unaccompanied trip to Europe. One summer Carly met a boy named Jamie Taylor, whom she found out lived a few house down from their summer home. Would this Jamie Taylor be the James Taylor Carly marries later in her life? During this summers, a friend of the girls taught Lucy and Carly a new technique on the guitar. They used this new technique in a song they sang at family get-togethers. It also became the song that would give the girls their first "big break." That same summer, Carly became enamored by the mythology of Orpheus and Eurydice; to her it was a tale of everlasting love and music. She felt it talked about the healing magic of music, a relief from obstacles in life. When she would feel lost, she would always reflect back on the beauty within this myth and find her way back to herself.CaAvailable on PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device.

Tad Butler, who was industriously chopping wood at the rear of the woodshed of his home, finished the tough, knotted stick before looking up. The almost unearthly chorus of yells behind him had not even startled the boy or caused him to cease his efforts until he had completed what he had set out to do. This finished, Tad turned a smiling face to the three brown-faced young men who were regarding him solemnly.
