The First Collection of Criticism By a Living Female Rock Critic





Austin, you've been waiting for this event your whole life (whether you knew it or not). Music critic Jessica Hopper has covered everything from Miley Cyrus to Bruce Springsteen to punk rock. Now, for the first time, some of her best, most entertaining work is collected in one place. The book journeys through the truths of Riot Grrrl's empowering insurgence, decamps to Gary, IN, on the eve of Michael Jackson's death, explodes the grunge-era mythologies of Nirvana and Courtney Love, and examines emo's rise. Don't miss this event!


Jessica Hopper is a music and culture critic based in Chicago. Her work has been included in Best Music Writing 2004, 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2011. Her book, The Girls Guide to Rocking, was named one of 2009’s Notable Books for Young Readers by the American Library Association.
