Grayson Perry

In this book Grayson Perry tells his story, his voice beautifully caught by his friend, the writer Wendy Jones. Early childhood in Essex is a rural Eden that ends abruptly with the arrival of his stepfather, leading to constant swerving between his parents' houses, and between boys' and women's clothes. But as Grayson enters art college and discovers the world of London Squats and New romanticism, he starts to find himself. At last he steps out as a potter and a transvestite.
