5.0 out of 5 stars a must read 10 Feb 2001
I picked this book up after a long wait and couldn`t put it down. The Toyah you see today is alot different from the Toyah growing up. She had a lot to fight in the early years. But she came though all of it.She is a lovely person who has time for her fans. Thank you for that Toyah. The book made me laugh and cry. It also took me back to the 70`s and 80`s. I been a fan from the early 80`s and still love the lady now. the story of her life as just begun. Its a must read for everybody. Keep up the good work Toyah! Hope to see you soon.... Paul Lomas

4.0 out of 5 stars Toyah at her best 30 Jan 2001
Living out lound is definately an appropriate title for this book. I managed to buy a copy of this title on the 2nd day of it's release and i had finished it by the 5th! Toyah is an extremely versatile performer and the book is the same. It is funny, intelligent, scary, heart-renching and heart-warming all at the same time. It is also very honest which, in a biography, is obviously very appealing. It is quite charming also and, if you enjoy it, you would be able to pick out your favorite bits once you've read it ( i can think of many myself, but i don't want to give the content away!). I do, however, think that you would have to be a Toyah fan to enjoy this book (not an obsessed one but a fan all the same)if not you would probably find it hard to relate to. Definately a must for all Toyah fans and possibly a miss for those who aren't.

Toyah Willcox has overcome many personal problems to be the multitalented success we are used to seeing on our television screens today. This is a well written autobiography documenting her action-packed life so far. Reading this has turned me from a curious admirer to a fan!
Many themes run simultaneously throughout the book. Toyah has been battling with what could be described as inner demons nearly all her life, yet grappling with these has also been an essential driving force behind her hugely ambitious nature. Amongst other things, "Living Out Loud" is an inspiration to any creative individual finding themselves struggling with emotional and psychological darkness. A strong spirituality has helped Toyah through one crisis after another, even though this spirituality sometimes sits rather awkwardly next to her passionate and at times obsessive ambition.
There are countless little recollections featuring friends, family, fans and the rich and famous. Many of them are very funny. Her meetings with Katharine Hepburn and Sting in her early punk days are two that stick in the mind. Later on there is her involvement with the Royal Family Its A Knockout and a visit to Buckingham Palace. At the other end of the social scale, Toyah's account of her acting tour of prisons is thought provoking stuff on a different level. The last few chapters feature her unorthodox marriage to another seemingly unstoppable individual, Mister Robert Fripp, a hero of mine as it happens.
I strongly recommend this book. Just one thing though... Toyah doesn't mention Teletubbies once...!
