Coming October 2012, "What Are You Doing Here?" investigates how black women musicians and fans navigate the metal, hardcore, and punk music scenes that are regularly thought of as inclusive spaces and centered on a shared experience; plus how their taste in music affects their lives in the black community. The book combines memoir with interviews, creating an incredibly perceptive portrait of heavy metal and its traditions.
"What Are You Doing Here?" will be available worldwide in paperback and ebook formats wherever books are sold, by Bazillion Points Books, “The first and last words in heavy reading.” The book is available for pre-order now at this location.
