Lita Ford Tells All

By the time she was 20, Lita Ford had gotten crabs from Dee Dee Ramone, toured the world with all-female punks the Runaways and got her nose broken by a belt-buckle-wielding woman in a fight. Ford's fearless Living Like a Runaway is a vivid account of life as "the one-and-only guitar-playing rocker chick who could shred like I did." Personal struggles mount: Exploitative Svengali Kim Fowley calls the band "dogs," and Ford battles music-biz chauvinism and estrangement from her kids. It's a fast-paced read – and, at its best, an inspiring one. – Annie Licata
