Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein

Mark’s first review of the year

liked it
Warning: this book is not about Portlandia. And it is also not funny. And it was mostly about Brownstein's involvement with a band I'd never heard of (yes, I'm not hip).

Where can I get me a Sleater-Kinney CD now? :) ...more

The character of Panther is a brilliant showman and ringleader, but the way he guides her thinking is so insidious, and so manipulative, we can't think of him as a trustworthy creature at all. Is he a product of her subconscious mind or are external forces at work? Are these her nightmares ...more
