Viv Albertine: 'To Throw Away Unopened'

With her 1st book, punk pioneer Viv Albertine shook up the memoir genre as defiantly as you might expect, with a searingly honest tale of those times, an unflinching account of her own life and troubled relationships. Her 2nd book’s title comes from the cover of her mother’s diary, that Viv after her death. But she did open it...and found within descriptions of her rebel self from the age of 11 onwards.This is great opportunity to hear from Viv herself about her latest literary award-nominated memoir that ‘is essentially about rage and being an outsider’
