April sees the North American publication of Miki's acclaimed autobiography, Fingers Crossed: How Music Saved Me From Success

Book coverWhat quite a few of us here at OL love about Miki Berenyi… Hmmm where to begin? Well, records with her band Lush, like nobody made. It’s true. Her stories, forthright and often funny accounts of fame, and what it does to other people too. That she ran her own fanzine and loves words. That’s plenty to be going along with.

April sees the North American release of Miki’s acclaimed autobiography, Fingers Crossed: How Music Saved Me From Success, from Mango Publishing as well as the global release of the audiobook via Bonnier Books. 

Fingers Crossed was published in the UK in 2022, and while on a book tour that passed through Wolverhampton, we managed to get together one of our favourite ever features together with Miki... Read it here:

All About and Contributors

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
