I’ve always admired Kim Gordon. I’ve listened to her music. I’ve followed her efforts at fashion. I delighted at her family’s cameo on Gilmore Girls and her scrunchy moment on Girls. One of my first and most memorable boyfriends loved Sonic Youth, and every time I hear Mildred Pierce I think of him. As some of you know, Kim and Thurston recently split. Sonic Youth is no more. Gordon wrote a memoir, and yes, it includes some mention of the other woman, but Kim Gordon’s life is so fucking interesting and intersected with dynamic and influential people that her split with Moore represents just one sad (but matter of fact) song in the EP of her life. I love her straight-forward and insightful writing. You will too. Read Girl in a Band: A Memoir.
