Editorial Reviews

Review

A writer in fine voice . . . [a] cracker of a book―Scotsman

Thorn is the perfect analyst of our reverence for and terror of singing . . .Thorn's practical, warm tone gives her a Miss Marple-like ability to appear kindly while holding mistruths up to account . . . She is best, though, as a sympathetic guide to the singers she loves―Daily Telegraph

The Alan Bennett of pop memoirists. I loved her book so much I wanted to form a band too

Smart, chatty . . . [Thorn is] a sufficiently deft writer to negotiate the populist and the high-brow . . . a thought-provoking and enjoyable read―Mail on Sunday

Honest and compassionate―Sunday Telegraph

As distinctive and lovely as its author's singing voice . . . a wry and wise memoir of a unique career

As a witty and wise chronicle of a life spent dipping in and out of the limelight, this is second to none―Independent on Sunday, praise for Bedsit Disco Queen

An intensely readable account of thirty years of being in love with music. Warm, assertive, sweetly funny and most of all honest―Daily Telegraph, praise for Bedsit Disco Queen

About the Author

Tracey Thorn was singer and songwriter with Everything But the Girl from 1982-2000. At that point she semi-retired from the music business to bring up her children. She has since recorded three solo albums, Out of the Woods, Love and Its Opposite, and Tinsel and Lights, and published her autobiography, Bedsit Disco Queen. She lives in London with her husband Ben Watt and their three children.
