Carrie Brownstein Reveals Cover of Upcoming Memoir, ‘Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl’
The book – named for Sleater-Kinney's song "Modern Girl" from The Woods – is due out on October 27 and details Brownstein's life up until the band went on hiatus in 2005. It doesn't cover the making of her television show Portlandia or Sleater-Kinney's reunion this year. Check out the cover:
The book's publisher, Penguin, describes the memoir as a "an intimate and revealing narrative of her escape from a turbulent family life into a world where music was the means toward self-invention, community, and rescue... The book captures the experience of being a young woman, a born performer and an outsider, and ultimately finding one’s true calling through hard work, courage and the intoxicating power of rock and roll."
You can preorder the book at Penguin's website.
