Ripping open Pandora's Box: Viv Albertine's memoir mines family secrets

When Viv Albertine discovered a bag labelled "To Throw Away Unopened", her instinct told her not to heed her late mother's instructions. The diaries she found inside form part of her latest book, a memoir which explores and unpicks a complex family narrative. Albertine has lost none of her punk sensibility when it comes to authenticity and urgency.


She tells Olivia Salazar-Winspear about the creative potential of anger, the "spotty boys" who became the Sex Pistols and why French female writers were part of her cultural education.
