Book Review: Carpenters: The Musical Legacy

By Mike Cidoni Lennox & Chris May

(hardcover) $35.00

This biography of one of the most enduring and endeared recording artists in history—the Carpenters—is told for the first time from the perspective of Richard Carpenter, through more than 100 hours of exclusive interviews and some 200 photographs from the artist’s personal archive, many never published.

This nicely illustrated book takes you through the multimillion-selling, Grammy-winning duo’s formative years right up through their 1970s stardom and Karen’s unfortunate end.
