Tracey Thorn (2013 event)
Sitting at home in 2005, Tracey Thorn realised she was no longer happy to be part of the show business feeding frenzy and decided to tell her story. And so one of the finest pop memoirs in recent times, Bedsit Disco Queen, was formulated. In it she tells of her time as one-half of Everything But The Girl and how writing the book gave her a taste for songwriting once again. She chats to Bob McDevitt in this event recorded live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
