Her acclaimed memoir "Rat Girl" (Rolling Stone called it one of the top ten greatest rock memoirs of all time) was followed by "Don't Suck, Don't Die," a finalist for the American Booksellers Association and The Southern Book of the Year awards. NPR says, "Not only one of the best books of the year but one of the most beautiful rock memoirs ever written."

Hersh's most recent book "Seeing Sideways: A Memoir of Music and Motherhood" chronicles the adventure of raising her four sons while traveling the world on tour.
