Tricky is one of the most original music artists to emerge from the UK in the past 30 years. His signature technique - layered, eerie, downtempo hip-hop coupled with deep, questioning lyrics - took the UK by storm in the early 1990s and was part of the sound that defined the post-rave generation. This unique, no-holds barred autobiography is not only a portrait of an incredible artist - it is also a gripping slice of social history packed with hair-raising anecdotes and voices from the margins of society.
Tricky examines how his creativity has helped him find a different path to that of his relatives, some of whom were bare-knuckle fighters and gangsters, and how his mother's suicide has had a lifelong effect on him, both creatively and psychologically. From the Bronx to Berlin, via Paris and LA, Tricky has continued to push himself in new directions as a performer.
