Book Synopsis



The Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller

The global icon, award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, actress, mother, daughter, sister, storyteller, and artist finally tells the unfiltered story of her life in The Meaning of Mariah Carey

It took me a lifetime to have the courage and the clarity to write my memoir. I want to tell the story of the moments - the ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and the dreams, that contributed to the person I am today. Though there have been countless stories about me throughout my career and very public personal life, it's been impossible to communicate the complexities and depths of my experience in any single magazine article or a ten-minute television interview. And even then, my words were filtered through someone else's lens, largely satisfying someone else's assignment to define me.

This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival and my songs. Unfiltered. I went deep into my childhood and gave the scared little girl inside of me a big voice. I let the abandoned and ambitious adolescent have her say, and the betrayed and triumphant woman I became tell her side.

Writing this memoir was incredibly hard, humbling and healing. My sincere hope is that you are moved to a new understanding, not only about me, but also about the resilience of the human spirit.

Love,
Mariah



Review Quotes



A full-circle triumph for Carey... The writing in this book is arresting. Carey is rendered as much a spiritual force as a musical prodigy -- resilient, self-aware, and also funny, in her regal way.
- The New York Times

"The Meaning of Mariah Carey is an instant classic of pop diva lit"
- Rolling Stone

We finally get to meet the real woman behind the image of a diva... Now, by releasing her memoir, Mariah Carey is finally free--and she's offering that key to freedom to readers who have longed to hear her true story so they can better understand their own. It seems she has finally, after all these years, become the butterfly she's always wanted to be.
- O Magazine

Mariah Carey's memoir is her best performance yet.
- L.A. Times

Any reader of her new memoir, will appreciate and devour unapologetic chapters that aim to take back the narrative on Carey's terms, dahling.
- USA Today

A fascinating memoir by a misunderstood star... A carefully pieced together self-portrait of one of this generation's most fascinatingly idiosyncratic, frequently misunderstood artists from the ground up.
- The Guardian

"As piercing and specific as a song... Carey's prose has rhythm and high drama... There's plenty in the 337-page volume that will surprise even the most devoted Lambs. [Mariah Carey is] a miracle, a memoirist, a singer, a songwriter -- the girl's got range. Famously so."
- Entertainment Weekly

Page-turning...Provides depth and valuable context around the experiences of a star... A wholly entertaining tale of a woman who made a harmony out of the discordant elements of her life.

Such a boring book. She is so self centered and boring to the core. She’s over hyped and out dated. She definitely money hungry writhing a book and STILL coming out with albums!? She can’t sing anymore

I have been a fan for nearly 30 years and I’ve always thought I knew what her songs were about, boy oh boy! Mariah’s stories from her childhood, early career, her marriage and all of her music in this book have been just what I needed. There are many moments of tears, laughter and triumph. This is for true fans, thank you Mariah ❤️

I was surprised to hear all the tragic events she’s been through as a child. This story is about surviving and striving for a dream no what your circumstances are.

I think we are so lucky to be alive at the same time as this icon. This book is beautifully written and is at points tragic, heartbreaking, horrific, silly, inspiring, and ultimately, so moving. Many will be able to relate to her upbringing and the challenges she faced as a young woman in the male-dominated recording industry. This is a must for any Lamb!
