What was I fighting for? Even now I'm not sure. Something so old and so deep, it has no words, no shape, no logic.

Viv Albertine has always been obsessed with the truth: the truth about family, power, and her identity as a rebel and outsider. But at what cost? In this brutally honest memoir she relentlessly exposes human dysfunctionality: the impossibility of intimacy, and the damage wrought upon us by secrets and revelations, siblings and parents. Written with Albertine's unique vulnerability and intelligence, To Throw Away Unopened is a startling self-portrait and a testament to rebuilding oneself and facing the world again.

Review:

Albertine's dark humour and sharp prose lift her into another league . . . This book transcends rock 'n' roll., The Times

Even more compelling and breathtakingly candid that its predecessor. -- Stuart Maconie

Genuinely startling . . . fierce, direct, unashamed . . . She masks nothing. The result is a book that does for the family memoir what its predecessor did for the rock autobiography: scythes through the myths, the distortions, the adornments and finds the rich distinctive stories beneath., Sunday Times

The best memoir I've ever read. -- Dolly Alderton

Brave, heroic and unarguably one of the most significant voices in British non-fiction., Mojo

[A] beautiful, tough, ribald, unsparing memoir. It's so rare to encounter writing this frank and fearless about love, violence, loneliness, mess of all kinds . . . A book for all ages and experiences. -- Olivia Laing

With her second book, Albertine breaks more new ground . . . All the rigour and rage of her punk heritage make this utterly compelling writing., Financial Times

Brutal and funny and heartrending and shocking . . . Violently funny about love, ageing, and realationships and sex . . . Albertine is a magnificent writer . . . There is not a single dull moment here, no page without rage, no sentence without pain or humour., The Wire

Incandescent . . . Where Albertine describes herself as frustrated, exhausted and repressed in real life, on the page she is wry and vibrant, and seems to hold nothing back., New York Times Book Review

Unflinching, frank, detailed, funny, disarming, deadpan yet passionate . . . completely gripping . . . You can't tear yourself away., Times Literary Supplement

Book Description:

Brave, intimate, and deeply confessional, this is the long-awaited follow-up to Viv Albertine's sensational bestselling memoir.
