by Tracey Emin
Here I am, a fucked, crazy, anorexic-alcoholic-childless, beautiful woman.
I never dreamt it would be like this. Tracey Emin's Strangeland is her own space, lying between the Margate of her childhood, the Turkey of her forefathers and her own, private-public life in present-day London.
Her writings, a combination of memoirs and confessions, are deeply intimate, yet powerfully engaging.
Tracey retains a profoundly romantic world view, paired with an uncompromising honesty.
Her capacity both to create controversies and to strike chords is unequalled in British life.
A remarkable book - and an original, beautiful mind.

Review by breakbeat
Never such an apt title for an autobiography, this book is a weird and wonderful journey through memories & dreams, following none of the usual chronological formats of biographies, at times you are left wondering is this a recount of a dream or an event, either way, fascinating from start to finish, lover her or hate her, it's hard not to be impressed with someone who has so much hope and positivity shining through such a troubled past.
