Culture Critic on 33 1/3: Liz Phair’s Exile in Guyville


The third in this series of posts about our new titles from the hallowed UK culture criticism site sees Liz Phair’s Exile in Guyville author Gina Arnold delving into five careers comparable to that of Miss Phair, including one major surprise:
