A fantastically engaging storyteller . . . heartbreaking . . . effortlessly funny
As spare and poignant as one of Emin's line drawings
A very readable book, and a surprising one too
Frequently affecting . . . intriguing, almost incantatory
Reveals a funny, sensitive and brave woman
Emin talks with brutal frankness . . . genuinely uplifting
Her writings are painfully honest . . . Strangeland is more than Tracey's diary, just as her bed and her tent and her blankets are more than private displays that happen to have attracted a lot of attention
While her best-known art has shown Emin at her most confrontational, in her writing we meet a calmer, more sensitive soul.
