Fine Arts Alumna Kim Gordon's Memoir Reviewed in The NY Times

Kim Gordon, Sonic Youth’s Antifrontwoman, on the Band and Breakups

By Joe Coscarelli 
 
Kim Gordon knows her reputation well. “Detached, impassive or remote,” she ticks off in her new memoir, “opaque or mysterious or enigmatic or even cold.”
 
But rather than dispel the persona she built up over 30 years as the antifrontwoman for Sonic Youth, Ms. Gordon hoped to make it three-dimensional in her book, “Girl in a Band,” to be published on Tuesday by the HarperCollins imprint Dey Street Books.
