In a 1970s commuter town, Tracey Thorn’s teenage life was forged from what failed to happen. Her diaries were packed with entries about not buying things and not going to the disco. 

Long before she would conquer the charts in Everything but the Girl, Tracey was a typical teenager – bored and cynical. Her only comfort came from house parties, meaningful conversations and the female pop icons who hinted at a new kind of living. 

With her trademark wit and insight, Thorn reconsiders the Green Belt postwar dream so many writers and artists have mocked, and where so many have come from.

Chaired by Janet Smyth of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
