No Girls Allowed: LARB Review of ‘Queens of Noise’

The Los Angeles Review of Books — haven for intellectuals in the City of Angels — offered some glowing words on Queens of Noise this weekend. This is one of my favorite lines:

“At times I had the impression that McDonnell pulled back on her own opinions like a politician, or like a mother trying to share her attention and affection equally among all her kids.”

Absolutely true, perceptive, and funny.
