9780099485162: Grayson Perry: Portrait of The Artist As a Young Girl

The point of this funny yet unsettling autobiography by a provocative artist who emerged in his twenties as a potter and a transvestite, is that we don’t have to fit in. It’s a lifeline for young boys who feel different.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New ed.. 196 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Every inch of Grayson s childhood bedroom was covered with pictures of aeroplanes, and every surface with models. Fantasy took over his life, in a world of battles ruled by his teddy bear, Alan Measles. He grew up. And in 2003, an acclaimed ceramic artist, he accepted the Turner Prize as his alter-ego Clare, wearing his best dress, with a bow in his hair. Now he tells his own story, his voice beautifully caught by his friend, the writer Wendy Jones. Early childhood in Chelmsford, 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 transvestite.
