Tracey Thorn at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

Returning to our roots can be tough, revealing and, as Tracey Thorn discovers in her book Another Planet, also inspiring. The singer-songwriter behind Everything But The Girl follows up her bestselling Bedsit Disco Queen with a wonderfully witty walk through the maligned suburbia of her youth. In this event, recorded live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Tracey Thorn shares hilarious recollections of the physical and emotional cul-de-sacs of her Green Belt upbringing and its lasting impact in a lively and wide ranging conversation with BBC Arts producer Serena Field.
