Description: "This book is about my experiences as a sexually confused teenager who became a disgruntled rock icon. It's a comment on the times, beginning in the summer of love. It drags me kicking and screaming into the 21st century." -Carole Pope "I have to bear the flower-bedecked cross of the baby boomer. For me the sixties consisted of taking every drug possible, hallucinating Shiva and Vishnu cartoons on hardwood floors, and having really bad sex with everybody. I almost forgot, we actually thought you could deal with your emotions with the aid of psychedelics and, yes, we did try to perpetrate the myth of a Utopian Atlantis-like lotus land where we could live together in peace and harmony. Yeah, right. Put me in a room with those losers now and I would run screaming to the nearest exit." -From "The Sixties (What Were We Thinking?)," Chapter One ofAnti Diva Praise forAnti Diva: "Apart from divulging/confirming some undeniably hot gossipthe book details the rise of a challenging and uncompromising rock band." -Kieran Grant,Toronto Sun, 8 Mar 2001 "Anti Divais stacked with hundreds of similar caustic toss offs, thrown about with the kind of casual abandon you'd expect from a self-confessed and inveterate name-dropperIt's the kind of book you take in a single gulp, for fear of losing step with its breathless, pulp-noir pace" -Greg Quill,Toronto Star, 19 Nov 2000 "Pope's humour and sexual bravado have translated well onto paper.Anti Divais a subtle but scathing attack of those who have drifted into complacency both on a cultural and personal level. It is both a challenge and an invitation, especially to women and cultural producers, to keep kicking at the pedestals." -Donna Lypchuck,National Post "[It's] an entertaining, saucy, naming-names kind of book that no fan of rock'n'roll in Canada ought to miss." -Bill Reynolds,eye, 23 Nov 2000 "Anti Diva[is] a partly affectionate but mostly scathing look at herself and at the decade that brought her fame." -Heather Malick,Globe and Mail "Anti Divais deeply enjoyable, nasty without apology, and unexpectedly deftPope is saucy and willing to say just about anything 'Unrepentant' is the word that best appliesRefreshingly, Pope does not feel the need to apologize in any way for this behaviour, or to seek forgiveness. There is no closure, no reckoning, no teary epiphanies on mountaintops or Costa Rican yoga retreats." -Elizabeth Renzetti,Globe and Mail "14 years after the official retirement of Rough Trade, Carole Pope has produced what is probably the raunchiest, trashiest, funniest autobiography ever penned by a Canadian celebrity." -Paul Gessell,The Edmonton Journal/The Vancouver Sun/Ottawa Citizen/ The Telegram(St. John's) "Popemade sexual politics the grist of 80's rochers Rough Trade a decade before k.d. lang started cross-dressing..[she] distinguishes herself by her franknessPope's confessions are those of an unreconstructed celebrity." -Elm Street "[Anti Divais] a titillating walk on the wild side." -Maclean's "It's the personality behind the words that makesAnti Divaan enticing read." -Chartmagazine (Toronto) "A provocative and enjoyably trashy autobiography." -The Edmonton Journa
