English pop star Tracey Thorn will promote her memoir, Bedsit Disco Queenwith a book signing in NYC this November. Bedsit Disco Queen: How I Grew Up and Tried to Be a Pop Star (Virago UK, an imprint of Little, Brown Book Group, 2013) is the story of Tracey Thorne, one half of the internationally successful group Everything But the Girl for 18 years, and collaborator with such artists as Paul Weller, Massive Attack and dance legend Todd Terry. Tracey has been in the charts, out of them, back in. She's seen herself described as an indie darling, a middle-of-the-road nobody, and a disco diva. As she explains here, she hasn't always fit in, a fact that's helped her to face up to the realities of a pop career. She discusses her realizations--that there are thrills and wonders to be experiences, but also moments of doubt, mistakes, and violent lifestyle changes from luxury to squalor and back again, sometimes within minutes. This is the funny, perceptive, and candid story of her 30-year pop career. For more info on Tracey, visit www.traceythorne.com
