You may know her from Sleater-Kinney and you may know her from Portlandia, but soon Carrie Brownstein will have another title attached to her lengthy resume: author. Today (March 16), Penguin Publishers finally announced that the "A New Wave" singer will join the likes of Kim Gordon and Chrissie Hynde by releasing her own memoir, Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl.
Three years after Brownstein announced her intentions to pen and release a memoir, Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl is finally set for release on Oct. 27, Flavorwire reports.
The book will chronicle Brownstein's time in riot grrrl band Sleater-Kinney and her rise in the music industry, all while she rallies against the machine.
Penguin describes the book as capturing "what it feels like to be a young woman in a rock-and-roll band, from her days at the dawn of the underground feminist punk-rock movement that would define music and pop culture in the 1990s through today."
Though the plot synopsis mentions her work on the IFC show Portlandia with Fred Armisen, Brownstein admitted that she won't be delving into her time on TV in Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl.
"It pretty much ends with Sleater-Kinney going on hiatus, and a little bit of leading on from that. But it doesn't even really go onto Portlandia," she said in an interview with NME. So, those hoping for dirt on the recent Sleater-Kinney reunion and new album will also be left waiting for the sequel...
