A captivating account of her life told with self-deprecation and humor. Self-aware and gutsy. Emotional and inspiring. Jaw-droppingly honest. Seemingly nothing left out. An important and fascinating chronicle of the era.

disclaimer: I have been a Hole fan since I was 12 years out. Live Through This got me through the roughest times of my adolescence, and is still a seminal album for me. I can put it on, and I'm instantly back in the places I was when I first heard them.
I was super stoked to hear that Patty Schemel would be releasing her memoir. There was a doc of her personal footage on Netflix called "Hits So Hard", which is a great precursor or even afterword to her book...... that originally exposed me to her story and her journey.
I love that she narrates the book herself. it's like sitting with a friend and listening to them tell you their life story. She injects humor and wit, and even when she's talking about really heavy subject matter, her self deprecating story telling keeps you connected to her.
She is unflinching in her story telling. She holds nothing back. This isn't the type of memoir where she glosses over the dark parts and only luminates her successes. You go down to her darkest moments and live them with her, so by the time a success comes, you're so emotionally involved, you celebrate for her.
By the end, I was honestly crying tears of joy for her. Patty Schemel has written a once in a lifetime roller coaster ride of a book. an absolute must read for any fans of Hole, grunge music and culture, lovers of biographies, and recovering addicts.
