Kicking and Dreaming

Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock & Roll by Ann and Nancy Wilson with Charles Cross (It Books/HarperCollins)

A National Bestseller

From the women who brought us the wicked riff of “Barracuda,” the mystery of “Magic Man” and the sadness and beauty of “Alone,” in collaboration with the talented Charles R. Cross (author of landmark biographies of Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix) comes the groundbreaking story of two women who broke gender barriers, and broke all the rules about rock music.

“Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson — better known as the faces and voices of Heart — look back on the personal and professional struggles and triumphs that define their legacy as one of rock’s pioneering female-fronted, creatively autonomous acts.”
—USA Today

“Thorough and entertaining…[Kicking and Dreaming is] satisfying for its breadth and spirit… the Wilsons write movingly and with a sense of humor.”
