Whether a fan of her art or not, this is one interesting woman. Well worth a read. And, if you are a fan of her art, after you've read this you'll think "ah!" - and her art makes more sense. You see more clearly where she's coming from.
buy the damn bool
anyonw who likes trace emin,HAS to buy this book. it is a very rewarding read. like tracy herself, beautiful, poetic and at times harcore. visually and emotionally.
split into three groups, this bok looks at 3 aspects of her life. the first being homeland - a memoir of her childhood in margate. fighting with her brother, sex on the beach and exploring margate. the secon section is homeland. - where tracy goes home to turkey, where her roots lie. picking olives with her father and trying to find emotional stability. the third is tracy land - a series of diary entries, poems, stories and stuff we expect from the tracey emin represented so widley in the media.
as a T E fan. it does make you understand where she comes from and why she makes the art she does.
to evryone else tho. i would say if ur shoppong online and are intrigued, buy this also. a vague interest in her is all; you need to become like me, hooked.
i've seen most of her uk shows since 2000, have all the books and was fortunate enough to meet her. (she was very warm and friendly) buy this book and open your mind.
I enjoyed Tracey Emin's Strangeland. It had the best advice on how to make a fishfinger sandwich and the practicalities of preventing an unwanted pregnancy that I have read. Her description of loneliness and how lonely people always look at the sky struck a chord with me. In fact she describes the sky in many of the extracts which her book is made up of. I think most visual people are fixated by the sky. Her description of her behaviour before her period arrives was comical, it was so true to life. I think may women go through similar bizarre behaviour patterns and look back three days later and think was that me?
She doesn't write about her art but I suspect this is the background to a future novel about her art which she is not yet prepared to write. Perhaps she is superstitious about this and doesn't want to lose her touch. I look forward to it when she writes it.
