Notes:
Originally published: 2021
In 1983, backstage at the Lyceum in London, Tracey Thorn and Lindy Morrison first met. Tracey's music career was just beginning, while Lindy, drummer for The Go-Betweens, was ten years her senior. They became confidantes, comrades and best friends, a relationship cemented by gossip and feminism, books and gigs and rock 'n' roll love affairs. Morrison - a headstrong heroine blazing her way through a male-dominated industry - came to be a kind of mentor to Thorn. They shared the joy and the struggle of being women in a band, trying to outwit and face down a chauvinist music media. Thorn takes stock of 37 years of friendship, teasing out the details of connection and affection between two women who seem to be either complete opposites or mirror images of each other. This important book asks what people see, who does the looking, and ultimately who writes women out of - and back into - history.

Book:Another planet, a teenager in suburbia:2020 Book
Author: Thorn, Tracey
Year: 2020
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Canongate
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2019 Before she was a bestselling 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 new kind of living. Returning more than three decades later to Brookmans Park, scene of her childhood, Thorn takes us beyond the bus shelters and pub car parks, the utopian cul-de-sacs, the train to Potters Bar and the weekly discos, to the parents who wanted so much for their children, the children who wanted none of it.
215 pages ; 20 cm (pbk)

Book:Bedsit disco queen, how I grew up and tried to be a pop star:2013 Book
Author: Thorn, Tracey
Year: 2013
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Virago
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Tracey Thorn was only 16 when she bought an electric guitar and joined a band. A year later, she formed an all-girl band called the Marine Girls and played gigs, and signed to an indie label, and started releasing records. Then, for 18 years, between 1982 and 2000, Thorn was one half of the group Everything But the Girl. This is the funny, perceptive and candid story of her 30-year pop career.

An undemanding read with a light (but not trivial) touch. Great for anyone (like me) who is female,
