Sandy Hsu is a singer-songwriter and multidisciplinary artist from Melbourne, Australia. She creates a lyrical world that is articulate, honest and almost intrusive to listen to. A collection of vivid story telling, her music is saturated with earnest nostalgia, raw sentiments and self-awareness. To Sandy, music as an ongoing platform for unadulterated self-expression.
What was your latest book discovery? What are your favorite books of all time?
The last book I read was Bitch Doctrine by Penny Laurie. I'm currently reading The Trails of Apollo by Rick Riordan ... I need to decompress after a long run of reading just essays and biographies. When I was a child, I used to really use books as escapism so it's been nice delving back into that realm for a bit.
It's a real challenge to select only a few favourite books of all time ... But I would pick:
A Life Of One's Own by Marion Milner
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Smoke Gets In Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty
Women in Clothes by Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits and Leanne Shapton
Just Kids by Patti Smith
The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness ... A bit of YA for good measure.
