We’re of similar ages and backgrounds, and Tracey brought vividly to life the shared culture, boredom and longing of being a teenager in a small town in the 70’s. What was less appealing was the scorn she feels for those, like her parents, who don’t share her outlook and her desire to live in London.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book that rightfully puts Lindy Morrison back into the history of The Go-Betweens. I loved Lindy’s raucous personality and fierce and fiery spirit. I also really liked Tracey Thorn’s writing style (this is the second book I have read by her), her thoughtful drawing of Lindy’s life and work and her own comments on the music industry. Totally skewered the mansplaining of music history and art.

Short but sweet, Everything But The Girl singer Tracey Thorn manages to pack a lot into her memoirs! Based on the uneventful entries in her teenage diaries, Tracey considers growing up in 70s suburbia, with an interesting history of the commuter village where her parents settled, and her bid to escape woodland and semi-detached houses for the freedom of London. She talks about her relationship with her parents, including her father's death and an attempt to understand her mother's life after having children of her own, but also muses on broader subjects like class and feminism. Funny but also touching in places, I read the whole book in one setting - only 200 pages, granted - and now I'm listening to her albums!… (mais)

Tracey Thorn goes further back into her childhood than her first book covered, and it's really well told.
