Reviews

A funny, candid memoir . . . Green vividly portrays being at the epicentre of the new rock'n'roll bohemian culture with the Rolling Stone crowd -- Barbara Ellen * Observer *
A funny, frank, powerful and ultimately moving memoir by an extraordinary writer who didn't merely roll with the Zeitgeist but remade it in her own image -- T. C. Boyle, author of The Harder They Come and The Terranauts
Robin has written a frank, witty and loving memoir about growing up in the milieu of the seventies at Rolling Stone. Her honesty and insight brought all those times back, some of RS's wildest and wackiest early days -- Jann Wenner, Co-Founder and Publisher of Rolling Stone
Compulsively readable, laugh out loud funny and beautifully crafted. I ate up every word. If you thought they had more fun back then, this book will prove that you were right -- Ruth Reichl, bestselling author of My Kitchen Year
This isn't a memoir recollected in tranquility. It doesn't 'capture' an experience. It animates a specific time and place - making it jump off the page so it smacks you in the face. If you didn't live it, you do now. If you did, it's deja vu all over again. Robin Green stares down her life in the clarifying light of truth. Her fearlessness and reckless honesty give her story an aching power, poignancy, and immediacy you won't soon forget -- Joshua Brand, writer and producer of St. Elsewhere, Northern Exposure and The Americans
Only girl on the masthead? And in the room! And still standing! And with cojones! Green has written a straight-talking, utterly indiscreet, deliciously shocking story about being in the right place at the right time pretty much all the time. What a hoot! -- Bill Buford, journalist and author of Among the Thugs and Heat
A riveting read * Sunday Post *
The Only Girl is a gripping read for all sorts of reasons, one of which is its candidness. Green likes to tell it as it is * Independent *
A sharp expose of life as the lone female journalist at Rolling Stone in the early seventies, complete with sex, drugs and wild discrimination * Telegraph *
An eyes-wide-open account of a particular time in America, a time in which Rolling Stones journalists could be found roaring down California highways stoned on mescaline in the company of Annie Leibovitz and Hunter S Thompson * Herald *
[An] entertaining, no-holds-barred memoir . . . She vividly recalls life at the heart of American counterculture, complete with tons of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll -- Clair Woodward * Mirror *
