Paradoxical Undressing / Rat Girl

Recommended Posts

This book is called Rat Girl in North America and Paradoxical Undressing in Europe.

 

It is the journal of Kristin Hersh written from Spring 1985 until Spring 1986.

 

I have been a fan of Kristin Hersh since 1986 when Throwing Muses released their first eponymous album.

 

This is a fascinating books written (probably re-written) just as Throwing Muses were starting to get attention in the indie scene in New England. But it is more about how the author's bipolar disorder delivered a number of songs during a "manic" phase and how she coped and delivered some of her best songs.

 

You don't need to be a fan. This is just such a good snapshot of a short time in a very talented artist's life.
