I’m not terribly interested in Tori Amos’s music, but her new book, written with Ann Powers, sounds interesting:

Interesting stuff when you’ve decided to find the cracks in the dominant paradigm.. If you’re into gnosticism (which seems to be experiencing a resurgence) then check out Piece By Piece by T. Amos & Ann Powers. It’s a close look at Tori’s career on one level, but her mysticism brings this book up to an entirely different level, one where the goddess as co-creator is discussed in depth. & if our society reclaims christianity as a religion involving both Christ and his lover Mary Magdalene.. well church might get a lot more interesting (and a lot less repressed.)
