Rocker Now Writer Liz Phair Dives Deep Into Emotion, Memory

The New York Times 1 month ago

LOS ANGELES — Singer-Songwriter and Liz Phair has written a new memoir where she dwells more on a lifetime of thought and emotion than on the backstory of her rock-and-roll career.

Twenty-six years after her first album "Exile in Guyville" made her a feminist favorite, her book "Horror Stories" was released Tuesday.

In the unconventional memoir, the 52-year-old rocker describes experiences like giving a birth, and climbing a tree as a child, with music often not involved at all.

Phair tells The Associated Press that these are the kind of stories that interest her more.

She also addresses the #MeToo movement in the book. She says she was reluctant at first but found that once she began she wanted to air out all her memories of sexual mistreatment by men.
