Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do and damned if you don't., 29 Jan. 2011
I bought this having had a sudden interest in learning more about the chameleon that is Tracey Emin. Just like the author this book manages to weave in and out of vulnerability, strength where some would show none, intense passion and numbness. Emin's attraction for me has always been her honesty, she lays bare every part of her experiences and shows the bad proudly along side the good. "Strangeland" captures the essence of Emin and is everything you would expect of an artist who creates controversy and erupts debates wherever she goes. I wouldn't go far off saying this is Emin's best piece of art yet.
