Mary Beth Ditto is a lovely, inspirational feminist, lesbian, fantastic singer and entertainer as well as her many other talents like clothes designing, making and cooking !
Her autobiography holds nothing back and reading this has just made me admire and respect her even more. Highly recommended for her fans or even anyone that wants to know the truth , not just rubbish the media has said. I loved it !

This is an honest and often heartrendering read from Beth Ditto. As an autobiography it is sad in places but also funny. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the Gossip as it does give a unique insight into the early days of the band. I got through it in one day and enjoyed it thoroughly.

If you're a fan of the ditto what's there not to love. I'll be reading this over and over. Apart from the book being perfect (can't find fault in Beth ditto!) the delivery was prompt. Can't ask any more than that
