Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest albums of all time + 100 best albums of the 90s, Pitchfork's Top 100 albums of the 90s, etc. Numerous essays and think pieces have been written about it and the number of accolades piled on is endless. Since the release of Exile in Guyville, Liz Phair has continued to defy expectation and break barriers. She has released five albums, and is currently working on a new one with Ryan Adams. She has also composed music for television shows and received awards for that work. In November, it was announced that she would be fulfilling a longtime dream to be an author, and she received a two-book deal with Random House. Her first book will be called Horror Stories which focuses on "heartbreak, motherhood, and everything in between." "A landmark of foul-mouthed, compromised intimacy, a tortured confessional, a workout in female braggadocio, and a wellspring of penetrating self-analysis and audacity." - The New Yorker "Maybe the greatest work of traditional American indie rock that anyone has ever made. It's also probably the best road-trip album of it's generation and the signal of a rare talent's arrival. It deserves to be celebrated. Let's do that." - Stereogum
