Tracey Thorn already had a huge following from her achievements as a singer-songwriter with Everything But the Girl and has acquired a whole extra one with her brutally honest memoirs, Bedsit Disco Queen and Naked at the Albert Hall. Her latest, Another Planet, a Teenager in Suburbia, delineates her bittersweet memories of the uneasy, uncertain years of living not quite in London and being not quite an adult. Tracey will be in conversation with Patrick Gale.
