Highly acclaimed author and much loved singer-songwriter, Tracey Thorn (Marine Girls, Everything But The Girl) joins us this evening to discuss her latest book, Another Planet: A Teenager in Suburbia. Her previous books – Bedsit Disco Queen and Naked at the Albert Hall – have earned her many accolades as an engaging, warm and witty writer, including ‘the Alan Bennett of pop memoirists’ by Caitlin Moran.
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 Brookmans 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.
