`I was saying things in songs that female singers didn't really say back then. I wasn't submissive or begging him to come back, I was kicking his ass, kicking him out, kicking my own ass too. My Blondie character was an inflatable doll but with a dark, provocative, aggressive side. I was playing it up, yet I was very serious.'

"While there's also an enticing music memoir by Elton John this month, I'm looking forward to this one even more"

While there's also an enticing music memoir by Elton John this month, I'm looking forward to this one even more-but then "Hanging on the Telephone" by Blondie was the first single I ever bought. Harry invites us into the "complexity of who she is" and how her life and career have played out over the past seven decades. "Upending the standard music memoir, with a cutting-edge style keeping with the distinctive qualities of her multidisciplined artistry", it includes an introduction by Chris Stein, rare personal photos, original illustrations and more. "The text is incredible," HarperCollins tells me.
