Editorial Reviews

Review

A subtle, suggestive book about performance―Keith Miller, Times Literary Supplement

Tracey's characterful phrasing is as persuasive on page as it is on record―Grazia

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

Thorn eloquently strikes upon some profound truths about human communication as she tests the powers and limits of the human voice―Observer

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

She can pick at the scab of a subject and release some of the unsavoury contents which have been festering under the surface.―Dubbo Weekender

Revelatory, always entertaining . . . a genuine insider's perspective . . . Thirty years of consideration went into this quietly impressive volume, and it shows―Independent

If you care at all about pop music you should read both [Naked at the Albert Hall and Bedsit Disco Queen]―Sunday Herald

Honest and compassionate―Sunday Telegraph --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
