Grayson Perry Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl

The acclaimed Turner Prize-winning ceramic artist 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 and at last steps out as a potter and transvestite.
