Rat Girl, a memoir by Kristin Hersh
Based on Hersh’s diary, “Rat Girl” chronicles the singer’s turbulent  life from the spring of 1985 to the spring of ’86: she was given a  diagnosis of bipolar disorder, signed a record deal, made Throwing  Muses’ cult-classic debut album and became a single mother at age 19.  The book begins in Rhode Island, where Hersh squats in an abandoned  house, her hair dyed blue by a drug-­addicted friend. It ends in a  hospital, where she’s left to reconcile parenthood with the punk-rock  road-warrior existence. “I’ll cross the  living-in-a-van-is-probably-­child-abuse bridge when I come to it,” she  decides early in her pregnancy.
