According to Penguin, Hunger is “the deeply personal and revealing narrative of Brownstein’s life in music, from ardent fan to pioneering female guitarist to comedic performer and luminary in the independent rock world.” The description further adds: “This book intimately captures what it feels like to be a young woman in a rock-and-roll band, from her days at the dawn of the underground feminist punk rock movement that would define music and pop culture in the 1990s through today.”
