A new book from Viv Albertine to be published next year follows discoveries she made about her family following her mother's death in 2014

Viv Albertine has announced details of a new book following on from the 2014 release of her memoir.

A press release describes the book, which is called To Throw Away Unopened, as "part brave reinvention of the memoir form; part feminist manifesto; part domestic noir; part love-letter to her mother; part autobiographical diary".

It was produced following a series of discoveries Albertine made about her family following the death of her mother in 2014. The book is said to explore "the intricate power dynamics between women over generations and the author's hunt for the truth".

To Throw Away Unopened will be published by Faber on April 5.
