Product description


Seeing Sideways is written in an elliptical, poetic style that makes it easy for readers to become caught up in her stories...[Hersh] is a good enough writer to interest people who may never have listened to her music. The astringent survivor's wisdom that runs through Seeing Sideways will be of value to parents of unconventional children and as well as those struggling with mental illness.-- "The Arts Fuse" (6/11/2021 12:00:00 AM)

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)

About the Author

Kristin Hersh is a solo artist and founding member of the bands Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave. She is the author of Don't Suck, Don't Die: Giving Up Vic Chesnutt, and Rat Girl, which was named one of the ten best rock memoirs ever written by Rolling Stone.
