Summary

A raucous and vividly dishy memoir by the only woman on the masthead of Rolling Stone magazine in the '70s. A female Almost Famous

In 1971, Robin Green had an interview with Jann Wenner at the offices of Rolling Stone magazine. She had just moved to Berkeley, California, a city that promised 'Good Vibes All-a Time'. Those days, job applications asked just one question: 'What are your sun, moon and rising signs?' Green thought she was interviewing for clerical job like the other girls in the office, a 'real job'. Instead, Green was hired as a journalist. 

A brutally honest, intimate memoir of the first girl on the masthead of Rolling Stone magazine, The Only Girl chronicles the beginnings of Robin Green's career. In this voice-driven, humorous, careening adventure, Green spills stories of stalking the Grateful Dead with Annie Liebowitz, sparring with Dennis Hopper on a film set in the desert, scandalising fans of David Cassidy and spending a legendary evening on a water bed in the dorm room of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. 

In the '70s, Green was there as Hunter S. Thompson crafted Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Now, she presents that tumultuous time in America, written with a distinctly gonzo female voice.
