The memoirs of one of the most acclaimed artists of her generation
by Emin, Tracey | The arts
Published 05/10/2006 by Hodder & Stoughton (Sceptre) in the United Kingdom
Paperback | 224 pages, None

The intimate memoirs of one of the most acclaimed and controversial artists of her generation. Here I am, a fucked, crazy, anorexic-alcoholic-childless, beautiful woman. I never dreamt it would be like this.

‘Frequently affecting…intriguing, almost incantatory’ Telegraph

Tracey Emin’s Strangeland is her own space, lying between the Margate of her childhood, the Turkey of her forefathers and her own, private-public life in present-day London. Her writings, a combination of memoirs and confessions, are deeply intimate, yet powerfully engaging. Tracey retains a profoundly romantic world view, paired with an uncompromising honesty.

Her capacity both to create controversies and to strike chords is unequalled in British life. A remarkable book – and an original, beautiful mind.

‘As spare and poignant as one of Emin’s line drawings’ Marie Claire
