Examiner.com’s Rave Review

The review of Queens of Noise by Pete Roche from the Examiner in Cleveland may be the most thorough and complimentary yet. Here’s a sample:


McDonnell’s book is an all-inclusive overview that draws hundreds of quotes from dozens of magazine and television interviews with the musicians, managers, confidantes, and kin to paint a bigger, clearer picture than any previous work. The Mamarama author (who also writes for The Miami Herald and Village Voice) digs deep, separating fact from fiction and myth from reality in between her own lucid expositions on the California culture, geography (“Exopolis”), and demographics (wo)manifesting in The Runaways’ union, ascent, success, and concomitant struggles.
