FROM THE SINGER-SONGWRITER ACCLAIMED FOR HER HONEST, INSIGHTFUL LYRICS AND ROCK & ROLL SPIRIT, A POIGNANT AND UNFLINCHING STORY ABOUT COMING OF AGE THROUGH MUSIC AND MOTHERHOOD IN 20TH CENTURY NEW YORK.

GIRL TO CITY follows one young woman's progression from Elton John fan in the Pittsburgh suburbs to Manhattan art student; from punk show habitué to fledgling musician to cult singer-songwriter who caused a sensation with 1996 debut solo album Diary Of A Mod Housewife

Set in a ramshackle twentieth century New York world of homemade clubs and bands, through love affairs, temp jobs and motherhood, GIRL TO CITY describes the screw-ups and charmed moments it took for a girl in the crowd at CBGB to pick up a guitar and sing her truth on stage, creating an identity as an artist back when female musician role models were still rare. For anyone who ever imagined trying to make a life out of what they love. 

“I’m beyond excited about GIRL TO CITY, a gorgeously written memoir that resounds with Rigby’s signature vulnerability and rueful wit.” — Claire Dederer, author of New York Times bestselling memoir Poser: My Life In Twenty-Three Yoga Poses

“Amy Rigby writes the way she performs and sings, laced with insight, humor, self awareness, and above all, heart.” — Lenny Kaye, musician, producer, author
