the last book I ever read (Kim Gordon's Girl in a Band: A Memoir, excerpt ten)

from Girl in a Band: A Memoir by Kim Gordon:

In 1987, Thurston and I were both reading Philip K. Dick, whose writing has more in common with philosophy than science fiction, and whose descriptions of schizophrenia were better than those of any medical journal. Philip Dick had a twin sister who died shortly after she was born and whose memory plagued him his whole life—which is maybe how and why our new album ended up being called Sister. We never decided this, of course; everything between us always had an air of undiscussed ambiguity about it.
