Nobody who has listened to Martha Wainwright's music could be in any doubt of her powerful voice, her blistering honesty and her disarming humanity. Her memoir, Stories I Might Regret Telling You, is one to excite established fans and lovers of graceful, candid writing alike. From her childhood amongst musical royalty – daughter to folk legends Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III and sister to Rufus Wainwright – to a career with all the highs and lows of the music industry, to tales of motherhood, love and loss, divorce and the search for personal peace, it's an unforgettable work of searing emotional honesty. In conversation via video with host Julia Zemiro, Martha shares the stories, truths and triumphs behind the music.
