Martha Wainwright: Failure, Fame and Family

The List

It’s difficult to imagine acclaimed singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright as anything other than a singular success. Yet as the youngest member of a talented – often quietly cutting – musical family, Wainwright has long considered herself a failure in comparison to her brother and parents. Wainwright talks to Karine Polwart about her hilarious memoir, Stories I Might Regret Telling You, and her life as the black sheep of a famous family.
