Horror Stories: A




“Honest, original and absolutely remarkable . . . elegant but unpretentious writing . . . There

are so many things to admire about Horror Stories, itâ€s hard to list them all. Itâ€s a

memoir with an original and fascinating structure. [Phair] mostly avoids writing about her own

songs, and while this may seem to be an odd choice, itâ€s actually quite refreshing—her

music, she seems to indicate, can speak for itself.―—NPR“[A] uniquely thoughtful, selfaware

memoir . . . bracing and refreshing . . . Horror Stories is more an archipelago of intense

episodes of unknowing with the implicit understanding that life is a wayward, unresolvable

business. . . . [A] rigorously open exploration of negative capability.―—The New York Times

“Like a batch of interrelated Phair songs, each chapter a separate and specific story, all

together accumulating into an intimate self-portrait . . . with equal parts elegance, humor, and

authenticity.―—The Boston Globe“Liz Phairâ€s songwriting has always had the rare

quality of being short-story-like. Damn good short stories, too. Horror Stories has that unique Liz

Phair ability to make you look at something youâ€d rather not, but once you do youâ€re glad

you did—like any form of honest art. This is why Liz Phair still is, and always will be, a threat.―

—Ben Folds  “Horror Stories cracks open the idea of fear itself to see what's inside. Liz

Phairâ€s stories are heartbreaking and inspiring, galvanizing and contemplative. This memoir is

as much about the poignant luminosity of the subjects upon which Phair fixes her gaze as it is

about the darkness she shows us. Witnessing her examine the moments that have stayed with her

over the years is captivating: a literary triumph by a musical icon.―—Lily Brooks-Dalton,

author of Good Morning, Midnight  “Horror Stories is a collection of turning points, plucked

free of ongoing time and their original settings. Gathered, they sparkle eerily, expanding to occupy

an entire remembered year—maybe even an entire remembered self.―—Sarah Manguso,

author of Ongoingness: The End of a Diary  “Liz Phairâ€s Horror Stories is a deeply

personal narrative about a groundbreaking musicianâ€s intense love affair with life, with all its

turbulent highs and lows. It is also about those things that have sustained Phair since childhood:

the wonder and healing power of nature, music, and family. A compelling blend of riveting prose

and soaring lyricism, Horror Stories is as enthralling and as addictive as Phair's music.―—Mira

Bartók, New York Times bestselling author of The Memory Palace, winner of the National

Book Critics Circle Award“A debut memoir as candid as her music . . . This powerful debut

will delight Phairâ€s many fans.―—Publishers Weekly (starred review) Liz Phair

is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter whose debut album, Exile in Guyville, has been hailed

as a landmark of indie rock. She began her career in the early 1990s in Chicago by self-releasing

audiocassettes under the name Girly-Sound. The intense response to these early tracks led to

Phairâ€s signing with the independent record label Matador Records. She has been a recording

artist and touring performer for over twenty-five years, paving the way for countless music artists,

particularly women, who cite her among their major influences. Phair is also a visual artist who

majored in studio art and art history at Oberlin College. Her writing has appeared in The New York

Times and The Atlantic. Horror Stories is her first book. See all Editorial Reviews
