Tracy Emin’s Strangeland

This post was written by Friday guest blogger Emma Garman.

I’m disappointed that Tracy Emin’s long awaited memoir, Strangeland, doesn’t seem to be coming out in the US. The controversial, notorious and brilliant conceptual artist – Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963 -1995 and My Bed are probably her most famous works – has written, says Stephanie Bunbury in an interview with Emin for The Age, “a marvellous little book, which should come as no surprise to anyone who has read the searing scrawls that so often accompany her drawings. Emin is a natural writer – funny, direct and remarkably vivid.”
