Customer Review

18 January 2018
Loved it. Blew me away!
Written in stripped down, present tense throughout. Found it increasingly gripping as she described her post-pop life. Love her spirit, her determination, her defiance. Utterly inspiring!

Wasn't sure I particularly liked Viv much before reading this. Thought she was still trying to capitalize on her time with the Slits. My compassion towards her grew as she described her time after 'The Slits' . Had previously seen a Youtube interview in which she stated that the book was as much about 'failure' as it was about 'success'. Apart from a difficult relationship with her father, I initially thought she'd had everything too easy, but in the 2nd part of the book as she recounts her struggles with IVF & Cancer & eventually a soured marriage, I grew more sympathetic towards her. To my surprise, I found this a gripping read. One worth holding onto and rereading again sometime.

If she hadn't followed a musical career she would have made an excellent writer. Would definitely read anything else she ever chooses to write.
