Ian, settled in Nashville for 20 years
with a lesbian partner, has no regrets
looking back despite all the difficul-
ties. She is particularly happy with her
most recent recording, a double CD
compilation of her work.
"It took me about
seven months to write
the book," says Ian,
enjoying meeting face-
to-face with her fans,
who also are able to
communicate with her
directly through her Web
site, www.janisian.com.
"I looked at what happened in my
life and found that some things were
not nearly as important as I thought
and other things were so much more

"It's a pretty straightforward life
these days. I'm having a good time
going out with the book. It seems to be
selling, and the publisher is happy.
"I feel great. I'm doing well. I work
hard and rest when I can. I believe if
you stay on the path, you get to where
you're supposed to be." ❑

"Being raised
as a Jew, culturally
Jewish anyway, has
been a huge part of
my life," says Ian,

"We were never observant, but in
terms of my ethics, moral stance,
understanding of human beings and
knowing people who had tattoos on
their wrists, [Judaism] couldn't help
but inform my life.
"I don't think I could have written
`Tattoo' any earlier than I did. I think I
needed a certain amount of maturity
to deal with the subject of concentra-
tion camps."
Ian, a cousin to the late Detroit
Symphony Orchestra conductor Valter
Poole, outlines the problems that
knocked her down. They had to do
with serious illnesses, parental divorce,
an abusive husband and a cheating
business manager.
