Hynde, Chrissie, author

Rich and incredibly frank, Chrissie's uncompromising memoir will include her 1950s childhood in Akron, Ohio; the Cleveland rock scene and the Kent State University riots; Paris and London in the early 1970s; a strikingly intimate portrayal of the nascent punk movement; and the formation and bittersweet success and tragedy of The Pretenders. Funny, evocative and candid, Chrissie Hynde's memoir has a surprise on every page and is sure to go down as a classic of the genre, and an unmissable treat for all rock fans
