Musings of a Book Addict

The Selves

The Selves - Sonja Ahlers When I have a little extra money, I treat myself to a Sonja Ahlers book. I've been loving her work for so many years now. Her voice is so authentic and piercing with a sweet after-taste. She is a pioneer in the original Riot Grrrl movement and it makes me sad to read reviews of her work by these younger "art school girls" who just don't get it. Your entire world is built on the backs of women artists like Sonja Ahlers.
