Written with her trademark humour and honesty, Tracey’s forthcoming memoir, Another Planet: A Teenager in Suburbia, captures the energy, boredom and despair of being a teenager in the 1970s. Prompted by her original diaries, it charts her return to Brockwell Park and her reflections and observations on her own youth, her parents, her kids, growing older, motherhood, class, culture, commuter towns, female pop icons, music and creativity.
