Books in Janis Joplin’s handbag


zelda1It’s usually pretty rude to ask a girl what she has in her handbag, but if she’s dead then I guess it’s OK for us to take a peek.

The Hairpin blog delves into the archives and Janis Joplin’s handbag, and finds an empty bottle of Southern Comfort and some smokes (of course), plus two books – Nancy Milford’s biography of Zelda Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe’s Look Homeward, Angel.

The idea of Joplin carrying around a book about Zelda almost makes you want to cry.
