Summary
"At the launch party for her memoir in 2014, Viv Albertine received the news her mother was dying. She left the party immediately and spent a few final hours with a woman who had been an enormous presence and force in her life. In the weeks that followed, Viv was left with the task of sorting through her mother's affairs. In that process she came across one fatally curious item: a bag labelled 'To throw away unopened'. This auspicious moment lies at the heart of Viv Albertine's second book, part memoir, part manifesto, part polemic in which she touches on sex, ageing, feminism (in all its guises) and other conundrums that characterise the 21st century life. It is a bold and unapologetic follow-up to a book which became a sensation by a musician and writer who sits at the heart of the counter-cultural landscape today as a celebrated and feted figure."--
Summary
Relates the death of the counterculture musician's mother during her first memoir's launch party, her discovery of a mysterious bag of personal items her mother intended to discard and her explorations of sex, aging and feminism in the early 21st century
