Synopsis

THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER
SHORTLISTED FOR THE PENDERYN MUSIC BOOK PRIZE

'Tender, wise and funny' Sunday Express
'Beautifully observed, deadly funny' Max Porter


Before becoming an acclaimed musician and writer, Tracey Thorn was a typical teenager: bored and cynical, despairing of her aspirational parents. Her only comfort came from house parties and the female pop icons who hinted at a new kind of living.

Returning to the scene of her childhood, Thorn takes us beyond the bus shelters, the pub car parks and the weekly discos, to the parents who wanted so much for their children and the children who wanted none of it. With great wit and insight, Thorn reconsiders the Green Belt post-war dream so many artists have mocked, and yet so many artists have come from.
