In conversation with Laura Kovacs
Popularly beloved as “Judy Blue Eyes,” eclectic singer-songwriter Judy Collins has delighted audiences for decades with such albums as A Maid of Constant Sorrow and Wildflowers. The latter album’s lead single, “Both Sides, Now”—penned for her by friend Joni Mitchell—brought her worldwide fame. She is a four-time Grammy nominee, a documentary Oscar nominee, and is currently a UNICEF representative on the campaign for the abolition of landmines. In Cravings, Collins tells the story of her charged history with food, the countless diet plans and weight-loss gurus she encountered over the years, and the measured solution she found to her addiction.
