Anti Diva Throughout her career, Carole Pope has blazed a trail for the diva and anti-diva in all of us, and here she offers a no-holds-barred look at her adventures in the music scene - on the concert stage, in the recording studio, and in the bedroom. Known for ushering Canada from the punk movement of the 1970s to the new wave sound of the 1980s with Rough Trade, she candidly shares her thoughts on AIDS, sexuality and sexual politics, and the new breed of music divas that dominates the charts today.

"This book is about my experiences as a sexually confused teenager who became a disgruntled rock icon. It's a comment on the times, beginning in the summer of love. It drags me kicking and screaming into the 21st century." --Carole Pope"I have to bear the flower-bedecked cross of the baby boomer. For me the sixties consisted of taking every drug possible, hallucinating Shiva and Vishnu cartoons on hardwood floors, and having really bad sex with everybody. I almost forgot, we actually thought you could deal with your emotions with the aid of psychedelics and, yes, we did try to perpetrate the myth of a Utopian Atlantis-like lotus land where we could live together in peace and harmony. Yeah, right. Put me in a room with those losers now and I would run screaming to the nearest exit." --From "The Sixties (What Were We Thinking?)," Chapter One of Anti Diva Praise for Anti Diva
