just finished reading this memoir by viv albertine – formerly guitarist of the punk rock band slits – it traces her life back from teenage all the way through to middle age.  its a brutally honest recollection of life from her first boyfriend through to marriage, motherhood and change of career – describing in full frankness the pain, the joy and the mundane.  i have to admit at first i thought that i wasnt interested in her life – some descriptions a bit explicit and raw, but its addictive reading and i ended up admiring her honesty;  the words are very simply written which makes for an easy read and lots of her thoughts, emotions and ramblings are exactly what you wish you could admit or utter, but are too embarrassed to.
