    Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl

    As well-known now for her role in Portlandia as she is for founding the riot-grrrl band Sleater Kinney, Carrie Brownstein’s memoir covers a childhood that leads to the center of the alt-rock universe of the Pacific Northwest in the ’90s. Time provides a level of self-awareness to Brownstein, while she retells the journey of her band through the industry and around the world.
