''Back in the day, I had four hours to read a book cover to cover, now I get a minute to read one and a half pages.''
Alanis has recently completed a tour of Europe, North America and South America in support of her latest album 'Havoc and Bright Lights' and doesn't think she could cope with such a gruelling schedule if she didn't have her husband and son travelling with her.
