Synopsis: Few would have believed that Kathy Dawn Lang, a geeky-looking tomboy from the Albertan prairies who once claimed to be the reincarnation of Patsy Cline, would grow up to become an international superstar... until she opened her mouth to sing.
Today, the Grammy Award-winning k.d. lang has become one of North America's most important pop icons. Regarded by many as having the finest female voice of her generation, k.d. lang is far more than a great entertainer. She's an iconoclast, a rebel, and an inspiration for millions - a self-proclaimed feminist and "out" lesbian whose look, and mere existence, challenges long-standing conventions regarding music and image, fashion and sexuality, and what it means to be a woman in the nineties.
In k.d. lang: all you get is me, Victoria Starr explores the life of the artist who has broken all the rules of pop culture while becoming one of the world's most beloved singers. From the rolling wheat fields of Southern Alberta to the glitz and glam of Hollywood, from the days when she was destined to become an Olympic athlete to the moment she became the first openly lesbian artist to win an American Music Award, k.d. lang: all you get is me traces k.d.'s path from college dropout to pop superstar. Along the way, family, friends, and colleagues share memories of the times that mattered most in her life: how her seemingly perfect childhood was shattered when her father walked out on her family; how she stumbled accidentally into country music; her work with Roy Orbison, Owen Bradley, Anne Murray, and filmmaker Percy Adlon; and the night the most important man in her life, her friend, mentor, and soul mate, Drifter, was brutally murdered in a drunken brawl.
k.d. lang: all you get is me combines the personal and the professional as it uncovers k.d.'s deepest emotions, from a commitment to animal rights that threatened to ruin her career, to her coming to terms with a sexuality that made her an unwitting poster girl for the lesbian and gay community. Along the way we discover the inner strength and unwavering vision of an artist determined to make her own wild dreams come true, as she points the way for women, gay people, and anyone else who is struggling to find a place for themselves in this world.

From the Inside Flap: All You Get is Me uncovers k.d.'s deepest emotions, from a commitment to animal rights that threatened to ruin her career, to her coming to terms with a sexuality that made her an unwitting poster girl for the lesbian and gay community.  Full f rare photographs, this is the definitive biography of k.d. lang.
