To Throw Away Unopened: A Memoir

To Throw Away Unopened: A Memoir

by Viv Albertine

Inspired by a bag labeled "To Throw Away Unopened" she when sorting through her mother's possessions after her death, Viv Albertine writes about her experiences as a woman in many forms (manifesto, poetry, autobiography, etc.), expounding upon her sex life, her experiences with getting older, what it means to be a feminist, and a a plethora of other questions and problems that occupy this era of life for women. With her love for music and experience in the many music scenes she was a part of, Albertine has written her follow-up to her first book, Clothes, Clothes, Clothes, Music, Music, Music, Boys, Boys, Boys, bringing her unabashed voice to the page once again.
