Starting with the blistering beats of the early hardcore scene and the birth of his first band Hüsker Dü, Bob Mould tells the riveting personal account of his life. A classic story of individualism and persistence, Mould gives us everything like he does on stage: his harrowing descent towards addiction and struggle with his sexual identity, his eventual rise to sobriety and second mothering of hit band Sugar. A melodious tender and frank self-portrait, See A Little Light imprints itself upon the heart like the greatest of songs.
"I feel so grateful that Bob chose to share his life story in such a candid and open manner. See A Little Light stands tall with the greatest rock and roll memoirs of all time." —Benjamin Gibbard, Death Cab for Cutie

Bob Mould stormed into America's punk rock scene in 1979, when clubs across the country were filling with kids dressed in black leather and torn denim. And at its center, a new band out of Minnesota called Hüsker Dü was bashing out songs and touring the country on no money, driven by the inspiration of guitarist and vocalist Bob Mould. In See a Little Light, Mould tells his dramatic story for the first time. Revealing the struggles with his own homosexuality, the complexities of his intimate relationships, and his drug and alcohol addiction, Mould takes us on a whirlwind ride through achieving sobriety, his acclaimed solo career, creating the hit band Sugar, a surprising detour into the world of pro wrestling, and finally finding his place in the world. A classic story of individualism and persistence, Mould's autobiography describes the rich history of one of punk’s most revered figures, whose driving force altered the shape of American music.
