About the Author

Debbie Harry with Blondie has sold 50 million albums worldwide, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. The band's eleventh studio album, Pollinator, was selected by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the 20 Best Pop Albums of 2017. Her solo career includes the albums KooKoo (1981), co-produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards of Chic; Rockbird (1986); Def, Dumb & Blonde (1989); Debravation (1993); and Necessary Evil (2007), as well as her long-running collaboration with critically acclaimed stalwarts of New York's free-jazz scene The Jazz Passengers. Harry has acted in more than thirty films, including David Cronenberg's Videodrome (1983) and John Waters's Hairspray (1988).


‘In this whirlwind tour of her life, Harry deploys an irreverent style well suited to her story. Her tales are intermixed with interludes that capture the eclectic and electric passion she has for the creative process. In a narrative that feels simultaneously heartfelt and spontaneous, Harry recounts close encounters with violence and harassment with the same immediacy as the moments that catapulted Blondie to worldwide fame. Readers will find reflection on life with a budding band and an uncensored view of what it took to succeed.’
Kirkus ‘Blondie fans will love its piquant atmospherics and the energy and honesty of Harry’s take on her singular saga.’

Stylist ‘Harry offers a vivid portrait of a seedy, bohemian scene in late-60s New York… Engaging’
Guardian ‘Face It: Debbie Harry’s cool and forthright memoir… The Blondie singer is a reluctant memoirist and what drove her to write this is unclear – but thank God she did’
New Statesman ‘Intoxicating… This candid memoir is an absorbing read.’
Daily Mirror, book of the week ‘Face It is a rollicking, riotous read, taking in Blondie’s ascent from gritty downtown New York to pop superstars to the band’s nosedive of heroin addiction, bankruptcy and break-up, and phoenix-like return to the top of the charts in 1999… a real page-turner… often jaw-dropping’
NME ‘An astonishing memoir’
The i ‘Debbie has us in raptures … Its tone is matter-of-fact, honest, self-aware and often humorous’
Daily Express ‘An eye-opening memoir’
The Times
