Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl

Carrie Brownstein

I picked this up because Brownstein is part of one of my favourite bands: the wonderful Sleater-Kinney.
Despite her success with the cult comedy show Portlandia this book is very much more concerned with her band than any other aspect of her life.
Speaking with a disarmingly frank and self-deprecating tone she looks back at the band and her early life.
It’s definitely one of the stronger rock musician autobiographies I’ve read.
I don’t think she paints a very flattering picture of herself but she does come across as someone very much worth knowing.
