This story begins in 1990, when Hersh is the leader of the indie-rock group Throwing Muses, touring steadily, and the mother of a young son, Doony. The chapters that follow reveal a woman and mother whose life and career grow and change with each of her sons: the story of a custody battle for Doony and the resulting PTSD is told alongside that of Hersh’s struggles with her record company; the tale of breaking free from her record label stands in counterpoint to her recounting of her pregnancy with Ryder; a period of silence in a life of noise coincides with the development of Wyatt as an artist and the family’s loss of their home; and finally, soon after Bodhi’s arrival, Hersh and her boys face crises from which only strange angels can save them.
Punctuated with Hersh’s song lyrics and illustrated with photographs from her archives, Seeing Sideways is a memoir about a life strange enough to be fiction, but so raw and moving that it can only be real.
The rock musician recalls episodes from her prolific and unconventional career--as a mom...Inimitable, unsinkable, kooky, and full of love for her boys.-- "Kirkus" (2/5/2021 12:00:00 AM) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
