Rocker Kim Gordon is to publish a series of essays she wrote for art magazines in the 1980s.

The former Sonic Youth star is currently working on her autobiography, and the tome will be preceded by a collection of her earlier writings.

The book, titled Is It My Body?: Selected Texts, will showcase articles Gordon penned for culture and art magazines in the '80s and early '90s, and is due to be published later this month (Jan14).
