From Zinester to Editor – Jessica Hooper

Pitchfork editor Jessica Hooper’s fist book: The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic┬áis a collection of the authors writing about music, and the culture around it from her punk fan zine roots in the 1980’s to her ground braking interviews with R-Kelly and Bjork.

This collection makes it clear that Jessica never lost her punk sprit of taking things head on, and attempting to build a better world. Jessica manages to be “staunch and caustic and uncompromising” and always on point.
