James GavinThe author relates Karen's story in writing as fluid and affectless as her singing. Schmidt makes no ambitious re-evaluations of the Carpenters' work, nor does he place them in any broad sociological frame. But he also avoids a fan's effusiveness. And as Schmidt details Karen's unstoppable fall, Little Girl Blue becomes one of the saddest tales in pop.
