Boys in the Trees
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.

Touched by the Sun
The instant New York Times bestseller | Named one of the ten best books of 2019 by People magazine A chance encounter at a summer party on Martha’s Vineyard blossomed into an improbable but enduring friendship. Carly Simon and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis made an unlikely pair—Carly, a free and artistic spirit still reeling from her recent divorce, searching for meaning, new love, and an anchor; and Jackie, one of the most celebrated, meticulous, unknowable women in American history. Nonetheless, over the next decade their lives merged in inextricable and complex ways, and they forged a connection deeper than either could ever have foreseen. The time they spent together—lingering lunches and creative collaborations, nights out on the town and movie dates—brought a welcome lightness and comfort to their days, but their conversations often veered into more profound territory as they helped each other navigate the shifting waters of life lived, publicly, in the wake of great love and great loss. An intimate, vulnerable, and insightful portrait of the bond that grew between two iconic and starkly different American women, Carly Simon’s Touched by the Sun is a chronicle, in loving detail, of the late friendship she and Jackie shared. It is a meditation on the ways someone can unexpectedly enter our lives and change its course, as well as a celebration of kinship in all its many forms. "In Touched by the Sun, Simon reveals an easy-going, playful side of [Jackie] that most people never saw — sneaking a smoke during intermission at the opera, frolicking in the ocean off the Vineyard . . . The woman who would later edit several of Simon’s children’s books was 'just fun to be around.'" —Juliet Pennington, The Boston Globe

The Boy of the Bells
Carly Simon follows the success of her first book for children, Amy the Dancing Bear, with an enchanting Christmas story. Writing for children has kept alive for her the magic years when her own children were younger, and she has dedicated this book to her son Ben. The Boy of the Bells is set in a small village in the north called Noel, the first stop on Santa's voyage at Christmas. Ben and his sister Miranda live with their grandfather, but for a year now Miranda has been unable to speak, and nobody knows why. Ben and Grandfather are in despair, and long to hear her voice again. On Christmas Eve, when Grandfather asks Ben to climb the squeaky stairs of the village bell tower to ring the bells to welcome in each hour of Christmas, Ben thinks of a plan to help his sister. At 11 o'clock, he rings the bells twelve times to summon Santa an hour early, hoping to speak to him. Will Santa come? Will he be able to help Miranda? Magical and inspiring, with a special message for children, Carly Simon's Christmas tale will delight young readers. Margot Datz perfectly captures the different moods of the tale with her vibrant illustrations. This colourful book will make an ideal gift at Christmas-time.
