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.For Phair, horror is in the eye of the beholderin 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 Storiesis 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 Storiesis 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 ofHorror Storiestransforms these deeply personal experiences into tales about each and every one of us.Advance praise for Horror Stories';Liz Phair's songwriting has always had the rare quality of being short-story-like.

This is why Liz Phair still is, and always will be, a threat.'Ben Folds
