: New: Book Report: Hunger Makes me a Modern Girl

It's a memoir by one of the members of the music group Sleater-Kinney. I hazily remembered that she'd had a well-written web site back in the day, read this, and was not disappointed. E.g., she writes of being ill "I felt like a walking infection, zombified and pestiferous." On the one hand, it's too bad that she felt so bad back in the day. On the other hand, silver lining, she got to use the word "pestiferous." There are worse things than illness in this book. Like plenty of folks, she remembers most vividly her mistakes—actions she immediately wished she could undo. Her writing evokes this stomach-churning urgent regret… As a result, it's not an easy read, but it's interesting, at least to a Sleater-Kinney fan, e.g. me.
