Regular price £13.99

The Sunday Times top ten bestselling memoir of Tracey Thorn's 30-year pop career with Marine Girls and Everything But The Girl, and her collaborations with Paul Weller, Massive Attack and Todd Terry. A Radio 4 Book of the Week in March 2013.

'The Alan Bennett of pop memoirists. I loved her book so much I wanted to form a band, too. Preferably with Thorn.' (Caitlin Moran)

'As distinctive and lovely as its author's singing voice, Bedsit Disco Queen isn't just a wry and wise memoir of a unique career: it acts as a kind of eulogy for a forgotten era of British pop.' (Alexis Petridis)

'An intensely readable account of thirty years of being in love with music ... Most would recognise her voice, with its rich blend of melancholy and yearning. Her written voice is similarly distinctive: warm, assertive, sweetly funny, but most of all honest.' (Chris Harvey, Daily Telegraph)

'As a witty and wise chronicle of a life spent dipping in and out of the limelight, this is second to none.' (Fiona Sturges, Independent on Sunday)
