The memoirs and confessions of Tracey Emin provide a remarkable account of an extraordinary life.
From the bed and breakfast land of Margate, through the vicissitudes of her relationship with a strong mother and elusive Turkish father, to international acclaim as an artist, her journey is told with searing honesty.
Despite her often painful past, Tracey has a profoundly romantic world-view, and her writings are a testament to a strange and beautiful mind.

"This artist's life story really is that archetypal tale of a human being who from an early age realised that she was bigger than her circumstances and had the courage, determination and 'mental spunk' to do something about it. A Jude the Obscure with a semi-happy ending."
(Evening Standard)
