9780091936518: Different for Girls: A girl's own true-life adventures in pop
Críticas:

"Teen love, bad haircuts, great music and laugh-out-loud memories" ( Fearne Cotton)

"Wise, funny and loving - a brilliant memoir about Britpop and possibly the best rock biography since Nik Cohn's AwopBopAlooBop-AlopBamBoom." ( Tony Parsons)

"This book is absolutely wonderful - I just read four passages out loud to the Word staff - to actual applause!" (Mark Ellen The Word)

"... funny, readable and filled with proper gossip. Most importantly, it's a perceptive and tenacious look at what it was really like to be a girl among the blokes in that era" (Alexandra Heminsley The New Review, Independent on Sunday)

"(This week Sam has been) laughing, crying and over-identifying with Louise Wener's hilarious memoir, Different For Girls." ( Sam Baker - Editor of Red Magazine)

Reseña del editor:

This is a story of an ordinary girl's transformation from awkward 80s suburban pop geek to 90s jet-set pop goddess. It's about the embarrassments of growing up and experimenting with who you are and how pop music is both the comic and life-affirming soundtrack that runs through it all. "Different for Girls" is for anyone who ever sang into a hairbrush and slow-danced to Spandau Ballet's "True". It's about growing up with "Look-In" and "Jackie" magazine and daubing your hair with poster paint to look more like Toyah Wilcox. It's about bad perms, bad boyfriends and the nagging feeling that no man will quite measure up to Nick Heyward from Haircut One Hundred. It's also about the journey from bad band to great band, from gigs in toilets to gigs in stadiums with all the mistakes, joys, disappointments and successes in between. It's a journey which starts with a 12-year-old perfecting her dance routine to Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" in front of TOTPs and ends, almost 20 years later, with the same girl having REM's Michael Stipe sing happy birthday to her on a warm summer's evening accompanied by 70,000 strangers.
