Features of Horror Stories A Memoir PDF

When Liz Phair shook things up with her musical debut, Exile in Guyville—making her as much a cultural figure as a feminist pioneer and rock star—her raw candor, uncompromising authenticity, and deft storytelling inspired a legion of critics, songwriters, musicians, and fans alike. Now, like a Gen X Patti Smith, Liz Phair reflects on the path she has taken in these piercing essays that reveal the indelible memories that have stayed with her. Horror Stories A Memoir PDF

For Phair, horror is in the eye of the beholder—in the often unrecognized universal experiences of daily pain, guilt, and fear that make up our humanity. Illuminating despair with hope and consolation, tempering it all with her signature wit, Horror Stories is immersive, taking readers inside the most intimate junctures of Phair’s life, from facing her own bad behavior and the repercussions of betraying her fundamental values, to watching her beloved grandmother inevitably fade, to undergoing the beauty of childbirth while being hit up for an autograph by the anesthesiologist.

Horror Stories is a literary accomplishment that reads like the confessions of a friend. It gathers up all of our isolated shames and draws them out into the light, uniting us in our shared imperfection, our uncertainty and our cowardice, smashing the stigma of not being in control. But most importantly, the uncompromising precision and candor of Horror Stories transforms these deeply personal experiences into tales about each and every one of us.

She has been a recording artist and touring performer for over twenty-five years, paving the way for countless music artists, particularly women, who cite her among their major influences. Phair is also a visual artist who majored in studio art and art history at Oberlin College.

“you can take me home, but I will never be your girl”

Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What’s this? )
I discovered Liz Phair when I was 20- it was 1994, I was in my third year of college, and I bought her album without having heard a single song off it based on the reviews in printed press. Things were *so* different back then. The internet was just in its infancy- there was no YouTube, no Spotify, no “viral” anything. What we had were recommendations from some mainstream magazines and the alternative indie press, plus word of mouth. Song lyrics were the things we turned into to find out what was going on.

Liz Phair was like a siren in a time when a more modern, mainstream perspective of feminism was on the rise, and her lyrics were like nothing I had heard before. She sung about things we (meaning women in our early 20’s) thought about but had never been encouraged to articulate. Her music was kind of life-changing for me, and gave me permission to kind of evolve into my 20’s in a different way than I felt like the world was expecting me to. This all sounds so inarticulate, and I apologize for that, but when I think about Liz Phair, all I can think about are her first three albums and the way they changed- and still change- my life.

So to say I was eager to read her book is an understatement. I was also, however, a little apprehensive. With her music and lyrics I always could interpret them and apply them to my life as I saw fit. With a book- especially a memoir, especially titled “Horror Stories”- it’s all her. And I have this sort of sentimentality about her, both the shiny parts AND the rough spots, so I wasn’t eager to have that shattered.

I shouldn’t have worried- Liz Phair writes like she always has- a lot of “here’s how it is, here’s how I remember it going down, and here’s how I feel about it”. She’s just an excellent writer, and tells excellent stories. I was hooked from the first chapter and just devoured the book in a few hours.

The book is a little bleak, but if you are a highly sensitive person who spends a lot of time in your own head, like Liz Phair does (and like I do), that’s to be expected. The world can be a heartbreaking place, and things that a lot of people see as boring everyday exchanges can haunt a sensitive person for years.

I can’t say for sure if a reader who is coming to this book without some familiarity of Liz Phair’s music and the way she sort of exploded into music at the particular time she did will feel as enthralled with this book as I was. The early-mid 90’s was a really interesting time to be a young adult. I didn’t think so at the time (in fact, I was quite miserable) but now that I’m in my 40’s and seeing the direction the world has taken, I’m a little astonished that the 90’s went down the way they did. It seemed like anything was possible but very few of us had a sense of which direction to go in so we could take advantage of it, if that makes any sense. Everything was changing, but everything seemed a little stale, too.

If you are a fan of Liz Phair, or were engaged with her music at any point in your life, I can’t recommend this book enough. I hope she writes many more- I think she has many stories to tell, and I’m eager to read them all.

engaging, hair-raising episodes from an insightful eye
October 22, 2019

Highly entertaining, real-world stories of hope and horror before and during Ms. Phair’s rock and roll stardom. Her voice is thoughtful and consistently generous through disappointment, betrayal, and outlandish misfortune. The narrative brings her faith and her optimism forward in a compelling manner. I would have read another 200 pages if she had written them.

The chapter, “Hashtag”, which details a handful of #metoo moments is particularly effecting. She expresses concern that by simply discussing abuse and harassment she risks losing professional opportunities. “Men, we need you to recognize that your casual, disrespectful attitudes toward women give tacit permission to scumbags who are acting on what most men assume is harmless banter.”

I’m grateful to Ms. Phair for speaking up, telling her stories and making her points in such a positive, effective, and entertaining manner.

An imperfect book
October 18, 2019

I think Liz Phair’s overarching theme was that of imperfect human beings and more precisely her imperfections. So, i guess it makes sense that this is an imperfect book. Some of the stories hit like a ton of bricks. Others, i just failed to see the point of why they went to print. It’s probably my fault, though. i drifted away from Liz’s music when her 2003 self titled album came out because she was singing about things with which i could no longer identify. Her first 3 albums are still in heavy rotation for me though. I hoped this book would help me reconnect with her work but new work. It didn’t, but there was just enough to keep me going. The story about Magdalena. Liz’s observation that sometimes an event can happen that indelibly marks a practical stranger in one’s memory forever.

In the end, although it misfired on some cyclinders, there was enough horsepower in the well timed ones to keep me reading.

A lot about Romantic affairs. Not much about music or anything interesting. She’s a good writer. Just a kind of anti-subject thing going on.

Needed an editor
November 1, 2019

Usually I finish a book like this in one or two nights but this was a struggle to get into. Each chapter seemed to just be a random story without much flow. I can’t believe a publisher let this get printed. She had some interesting stories but if you want to learn something about her life just listen to her on Joe Rogan.
