Bought this book in a kindle format, so no comments from me on inappropriate cover image, but FIY there's an annoying number of i's and r's missing from words in it.
I didn't know anything about Kristin Hersh before I got this book, I just saw a brief review in a newspaper about it and it stuck in my head, so I got it before I went on a weekend getaway.
It's superbly well written, difficult to put down and is basically the kind of book you find yourself reading in the middle of the night trying not to wake anyone with your laughter. It's not always about funny things, but Kristin's take on the events in her life can be hilarious. Intermittently you find bits of song lyrics and a sort of little stories that describe how she's feeling at the time.
Since reading it, I got Throwing Muses' first album, which is lovely. Hasn't converted me into a die hard fan, but certainly has given me an entrance point into their music.
