Sonic Youth fans rejoiced when bassist Kim Gordon released her (now #1 bestselling) memoir Girl in a Band earlier this year. An artist, musician, writer, designer, and just generally cool human, Kim shares stories about her experiences as a member of indie rock’s most beloved band, but it’s her insights on motherhood, relationships, and the balancing act between career and family that we found most compelling. Girl in a Band is an inspiring and comforting read, because as the Guardian newspaper wrote, “Anyone who had fallen for Gordon’s steely cool – and the hope that an unconventional woman could have art, love, freedom, success, and a family – won’t be disappointed to learn that Gordon was often feeling her way, just like the rest of us.”
