Folkestone Book Festival: Viv Albertine in conversation with Melita Dennett

To Throw Away Unopened is the follow up to the best-selling Clothes, Music, Boys by punk pioneer (of The Slits), artist and writer Viv Albertine, in which she has reinvented the memoir genre with her unflinching honesty. 

A fearless dissection of one woman’s obsession with the truth about family, power and her identity as a rebel and outsider. With the inimitable blend of humour, vulnerability, and intelligence that makes Viv Albertine one of our finest authors working today, To Throw Away Unopened smashes through layers of propriety and leads us into a new place of savage self-discovery.

Crackling with anger and brimming with insight into the dirty business of art, family and woman in a hostile world. Eimear Mcbride
