The Importance of Music to Girls

by Lavinia Greenlaw - £8.99  Faber & Faber (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571332274 | ISBN 10: 0571332277

If I had not kissed anyone, or danced with anyone, or had a reason to cry, the music made me feel as if I had gone through all that anyway... the music attracted and repelled, organised and disturbed and then let us into the night, clusters of emotion ready to dissolve into sleep.
 
In The Importance of Music to Girls, Lavinia Greenlaw tells the story of the adventures that music leads us into: getting drunk, falling in love, dying of boredom, cutting our hair, terrifying our parents, wanting to change the world.
 
This is a vivid memoir unlike any other, recalling the furious passion of being young, female, and coming alive through music.
