About the Book

from Simon and Schuster


A timely and passionate call to action for engaging with our current political moment, from the Grammy-nominated and multiplatinum singer-songwriter and New York Times bestselling author Tori Amos.

Since the release of her first, career-defining solo album Little Earthquakes, Tori Amos has been one of the music industry's most enduring and ingenious artists. From her unnerving depiction of sexual assault in "Me and a Gun" to her post-9/11 album, Scarlet's Walk, to 2017's Native Invader, her work has never shied away from intermingling the personal with the political.

From her time as a teenager playing hotel bars in Washington, DC, for the politically powerful to the subsequent three decades of her formidable music career, Amos explains how she managed to create meaningful, politically resonant work against patriarchal power structures -- and how her proud declarations of feminism and her fight for the marginalized always proved to be her guiding light. She teaches us to engage with intention in this tumultuous global climate and speaks directly to supporters of #MeToo and Time's Up, as well as young people fighting for their rights and visibility in the world.

Filled with compassionate guidance and actionable advice -- and using some of the most powerful, political songs in Amos's canon -- Resistance is for anyone determined to steer the world back in the right direction.
