Reviews

"Kim Gordon writes the way she plays. Fiercely, honestly, and with the creative abandon of a singular artist."--AMY POEHLER, actor, producer, writer
"I've always admired Kim Gordon. She is cool, smart, and dignified. Girl in a Band is a fascinating and honest memoir full of raw emotion and insight."--SOFIA COPPOLA, filmmaker
"Written with the same cool passion she brings to her lyrics, Gordon delivers a generous look at life inside the punk whirlwind."--Kirkus Reviews
Everybody loves Kim Gordon. So it's pretty much my bet that everybody will be hanging on the words of anyone who's read her forthcoming memoir (which is reportedly phenomenal). [Ed. note: It's even better than you're probably expecting.]--Flavorwire
"From beginning to end, the icon chronicles the evolution of music, art, and herself, set in and out of an ever-changing New York."--Interview
Gordon's career as a musician, artist, critic, performer, producer, and designer spanned the last truly hip era of downtown New York. The names and the nostalgia-for those who remember or who wish they did-are well worth the price of admission.--Booklist
An intriguing memoir. . . [Gordon's] unique sensibility never fades.--Publishers Weekly
"heartbreaking, raw, articulate, and inspiring."--Bust Magazine
"The best thing one of your heroes can do is make you feel heroic yourself. Kim Gordon has done just that in her memoir; it is full of beauty and power, inspiration, kindness, boldness and hope."--CARRIE BROWNSTEIN, writer, actor, musician CARRIE BROWNSTEIN, writer, actor, musician
