Tracey Thorn
A Teenager in Suburbia

Before the dazzling horizons of Hull and the formation of Everything But The Girl beckoned, Tracey Thorn was a teenager in suburban Hertfordshire, faithfully recording in her diary all the things she was missing out on, what she dreamt of, and the female pop icons who lit the way forward. In Another Planet, Thorn revisits the cul-de-sacs and bus shelters of her youth and wonders what became of the utopian suburban project.
