WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
“Friend, asshole, angel, mutant,” is the way that musician and author Kristin Hersh describes singer-songwriter Vic Chesnutt, a quadriplegic who could play only simple chords on his guitar but nevertheless recorded seventeen critically acclaimed albums and was named among the top five best living songwriters by NPR before his death in 2009. Hersh chronicles her friendship with Chesnutt in the new memoir, DON'T SUCK, DON'T DIE: GIVING UP VIC CHESNUTT, a book that shares insights into both their mutual bond and the pain and creativity that haunted Chesnutt. Hersh, the author of the critically acclaimed rock memoir RAT GIRL, offers the most personal, empathetic look at the creative genius and often-tormented life of Chesnutt that is ever likely to be written.

"The book's great sadness is matched by the skill and vitality of Hersh's writing; it will make treasured and troubled reading for fans of Chesnutt and the author alike. "
--KIRKUS REVIEWS

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
