Bookshelf #11: Biographies

It seems that I am on a real streak with biographies lately. While I usually favor fiction, I do occasionally love reading about other peoples’ lives and their own recollections of it especially.


I’ve made my way through several so far, having loved Roald Dahl’s Boy and Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast as well as Anthony Kiedis’ Scar Tissue.

Right now, I’m working through Grace Coddington’s wonderful eponymous memoir which recounts her modelling career as well as her rise in the fashion industry and her life in England and America. It is studded with gorgeous photography and captures her unique voice perfectly. Next on my list then is Kim Gordon’s Girl in a Band. As a Sonic Youth enthusiast, I am excited to delve into her story as well.

What biographies have you read lately that have stayed with you? I’m up for recommendations any time!
