The Original Rat Girl: An interview with Kristin Hersh

Kristin Hersh began her band Throwing Muses in the late 80s when she was still a teenager.

In April 2016 she was in Australia on her Don’t Suck Don’t Die tour.

The tour incorporated acoustic sets with readings from her novels Don’t Suck Don’t Die – a biography of her friend and fellow musician Vic Chesnutt and her memoir Rat Girl.

This interview is all about Kristin the author and I began by asking why she chose to write Don’t Suck Don’t Die to Vic.

This interview is all about Kristin the singer songwriter.
