I sit on the fence when it comes to her art, alternating between liking it and not being sure what to make of it. I have a definite opinion on her writing on the other hand and highly recommend it. This is my second time reading Strangeland and I'm giving it my full attention-the first was done on a noisy train journey.

Upon reading Strangeland Jeanette Winterson said "Her latest writings are painfully honest, and certainly some of it should have been edited out by someone who loves her". Sections of the book are like a car crash in written form, disturbing but yet difficult to avert your eyes from. One thing Emin seems unafraid of is being frank and her writing at times is surprisingly tender and sweet.
