There was a problem with saving your item(s) for later. An anonymous pundit writes: "At last, we finally get insight on what it was like growing up with Frank Zappa from the person most qualified to speak about it - his sister Patrice (Candy) Zappa. You can go to cart and save for later there. Since we all came from families, Candy generously shows us what her family looked like and how they lived. This human element is something that is lacking in books today ) Hard-core fans will come away with something they didn't know about Frank Zappa, and almost all of the early photos of Frank have not been seen before.

11. BEING FRANK: MY TIME WITH FRANK ZAPPA by Nigery Lennon

When I purchased MY BROTHER WAS A MOTHER from Amazon, I thought the theme was a cute idea -- until I read the Preface. The Preface made the entire enterprise sound uncomfortably exploitive. I was particularly distressed when I noticed that Nigey Lennon wrote the Forward. I disliked her book entitled, BEING FRANK. I was deeply offended by Lennon's portrayal of Frank Zappa, and as a result didn't write a review of it. I feared that MY BROTHER WAS A MOTHER was going down the same path. Fortunately, it didn't.

I brought MY BROTHER WAS A MOTHER to keep my mind occupied on a plane trip from Lumberton, NC to Washington, DC via Charlotte, NC. I was able to complete the entire book (87 pages) within the Lumberon/Charlotte leg (20 to 30 minutes). Thus, this book isn't long enough to be a good plane book. Regardless, I genuinely enjoyed it.

MY BROTHER WAS A MOTHER offers some insight that others book about Frank Zappa do not. For example, I was intensely interested in reading about the conflictual relationship between son and father. Most of us who were reared in the 60's had the same experience with our parents. In one particular circumstance, Candy didn't offer adequate details. Rock history records Frank's arrest for producing an adult film. His dad bailed him out of jail. I wish that Candy would have developed a deeper insight into the dynamics of the father/son relationship. In the book she describes the contempt for each had for the other, but when the rubber hits the road, a good dad will come to the aid of his son. Later, the son will come to the aid of his dad. Even if the son is Frank Zappa! Candy should have addressed this incident in greater detail.

All and all, this is a worthy read and should be included into everyone's Frank Zappa library. Last word, I think my copy is autographed by the author. With a felt tip pen, "Candy" is inscribed on the over page. Is that possible?

Zappa followers have been seeing the same handful of photos from Frank's youth over and over since David Walley's early 70's biography. This book increases that collection by a staggering 2000% or so! Really striking is how the photos hint at a more middle-class and happy family existence than Frank seemed to have wanted us to believe. The scores of photographs of his parents, grandparents and other relatives form a new basis for biography fitting Frank's status as a great 20th Century musician that the world slowly seems to be discovering.
Frank was a private person and glimpses into what kind of person he was, as a human like you and me, are rare. Along with Nigey Lennon's BEING FRANK, this book offers some insights that make for enjoyable reading. That being said, the literary aspriations of this book are fairly modest. Candy Zappa knew her brother from afar, and has just a handful of anecdotes pertaining to Frank's family life and her contact with him. She doesn't try to make it any more than that, and she tells her story in her language, with her own coloquialisms, with no nods to the literary sheen that biographies are "supposed" to have.

I bought this book for my husband who is a Zappa fan. I have never been. Give me Peter, Paul and Mary......however, I did find that there is more to someone's life than a slanted version by someone out to make a buck. Pictures can show a thousand words as we all know, and this book is one of those. It is most interesting to find that not every book has to be 3 inches thick with words that mean nothing. I was able to visualize Frank, his family and his life. Though I know nothing of him or his family, I think I can see that he came from strong roots with a love a desire that did not stop his music or his lifestyle.
I am not here to judge him, the author, or anyone else, but to let others know that this is certainly a book well worth the money. As an avid reader of biographies and autobiographies I thank you for the format to express my opinion. Karen M

I really enjoyed this book! I loved the way the suthor went in to the history of Frank's family. It was an enjoyable experience, I found out alot of things that I never knew about. I loved it from begining to the end. Candy, she is a star in her own right. I would advise everyone to pick this book up.
