Girl in a Band: A Memoir by Kim Gordon; book review

When the post punk-rock group, Sonic Youth, disintegrated in 2011 following the break-up of the marriage of key members, Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon’s, bereft fans sought answers. This memoir, named after one of Gordon’s most hated interview questions (what’s it like...?) offers those answers, openly, and often bitterly. But first and foremost this is a book about Gordon’s life, from growing up in California, with years spent in Hong Kong and Hawaii to starting art school and moving to New York where her first job was working in a gallery as its inept assistant. You have to get nearly half way through the book before the story of the band even begins.
