520    "When Liz Phair was just starting out in the Wicker Park, 
       Chicago, music scene in the early 1990s, she encountered 
       some people--mostly men, who didn't respect her and were 
       determined not to see her fail, exactly, because they 
       didn't care enough about her to wish failure on her--they 
       just wanted her to get out of their space, to disappear. 
       "Girly Sound" was the name of the cassettes she used to 
       pass around in those days, and in 1993 those songs became 
       the landmark album Exile in Guyville, which turned Phair, 
       at twenty-five, into a foul-mouthed feminist icon. Now, 
       like a Gen X Patti Smith, Liz Phair tells the story of her
       life and career in a memoir about the moments that have 
       haunted her most. Horror is in the eye of the beholder. 
       For Phair, horror is what stays with you--the often 
       unrecognized, universal experiences of daily pain, shame, 
       and fear that make up our common humanity. In Phair's case
       it means the dangers of falling for "the perfect guy," and
       the disaster that awaits her; the memory of a stranger 
       passed out on a bathroom floor amid a crowd of girls, 
       forcing her to consider our responsibilities to one 
       another, and the gnawing regret of being a bystander; and 
       the profound sense of emptiness she experienced on the set
       of her first celebrity photoshoot. Horror Stories is a 
       literary accomplishment, and reads like the confessions of
       a friend. It is a book that gathers up all of our isolated
       shames, bringing us together in our shared imperfection, 
       our uncertainty and our cowardice, smashing the stigma of 
       not being in control. But most importantly, Horror Stories
       is a memoir that asks questions of how we feel about the 
       things that have happened to us, how we cope with regret 
       and culpability, and how we break the spell of those 
       things, leeching them of their power over us. This memoir 
       is an immersive experience, taking readers inside the most
       intimate moments of Phair's life. Her fearless prose, wit,
       and uncompromising honesty transform those deeply personal
       moments into tales about each and every one of us--that 
       will appeal to both the serious fan and the serious 
       reader"--|cProvided by publisher.
