To Throw Away Unopened

by Viv Albertine

Shortlisted for the Costa Biography Award for 2018.

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.
