Product description


'Oh Viv Albertine! I salute you. Such honesty!.' (Nigella Lawson)

'A brutally honest book about the blood, guts, sweat and tears that went into becoming a woman in the seventies.' (Helen Brown Sunday Telegraph)

'Viv Albertine, I love your book VERY badly. It's amazing.' (Caitlin Moran)

'[Albertine's] voice is important in the back story of women in British rock, but she is now as original and interesting an entertainer in words as in music.' (The Times)

'Both a bold chronicle of her personal ups and downs and a historical document that blows holes in the established punk narrative in which men are the major players and women merely window dressing.' (Fiona Sturges Independent)

'The Slits were perhaps the most subversive group of all ... Their adventures, musical and otherwise, are at the heart of this searingly honest memoir.' (Sean O'Hagan Observer)

'Explicit, traumatic and moving in equal measure.' (Mojo)

'Funny, rude, tender and superbly written.' (Ian Thomson Spectator)

'A terrific read ... Gripping and moving.' (Ian Rankin Guardian)

'A story of femaleness, of feminism and of a fascinating life, which show Albertine to be a memoirist of great skill, wit and humour ... Albertine is a natural writer, and this story soars in her hands, shaking off the rock-biog cliches.' (Sinead Gleeson Irish Times)

Book Description

The story of a life lived unscripted, told from the heart.
