'Here I am, a fucked, crazy, anorexic-alcoholic-childless, beautiful woman. I never dreamt it would be like this.' 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.

    Terribile, terribile.
    Si offende qualcuno se dico che fa proprio cagare sto libro??
    Mio dio per fortuna è stata una tortura durata solo 212 pagine!
    Ok, Tracy, sarai anche una grande artista, ma i libri lasciali scrivere a chi sa farlo. Grazie.

    *A young girl si dancing at a provincial disco - to "Wishing on a star" - dancing in a very provocative way. *

    Tracey is an artist, a good artist, and her works have that something that makes you wonder why didn't you think of it by yourself before.
    This book is more than anyone could expect by a world famos still living artist. It is more than a biography, more than an essay: it's a key to all of her works.
    Every single word is so strong that you feel compelled to read and read without stopping and when it's over you just find yourself going astray, and something hurts.
    She's a writer on her best and her words are just another work of art.
