Another Planet: A Teenager in Suburbia – Tracey Thorn
“Before she became an acclaimed and much-loved musician and writer, Tracey Thorn was a typical teenager: bored and cynical, despairing of her aspirational parents. Her only comfort came from house parties, Meaningful Conversations and the female pop icons who hinted at a a new kind of living.”
Thorn takes us back to her teenage years in suburbia – to the bus shelters and pub car parks, the cul-de-sacs and the train to Potters Bar. In part reliant on her teenage diaries – which have the whiff, as most teenage diaries do, of the Adrian Mole – she writes with insight, wit and sensitivity.
