This poignant memoir by northwest punk icon Carrie Brownstein is most notable for its ability to situate you in a place and time. Brownstein evokes the pre-tech boom northwest through scenes in a drab telemarketing office in the University District and dilapidated DIY venues in Olympia--scenes from a world venture capital has decided are better left in the past. Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl should, by rights, eventually be considered a classic of Seattle and Pacific Northwest literature.
