'Bedsit Disco Queen: How I Grew Up And Tried To Be A Pop Star' by Tracy Thorn
From post-punk folkie to jazz-pop sophisticate to titular avant-disco queen to stay-at-home mom and Twitter heroine, Tracy Thorn can now add ace memoirist to her CV. At core it's a double love story: One with life partner (and half of their duo Everything But The Girl) Ben Watt, the other with music. Unpacking the absurdities of a pop life with indie-rock integrity, feminist/humanist smarts, and writing chops, Thorn will be your new best friend by page 10.
