KT Cloudbusting -- Kate Bush In Her Own Words

Kate'S Book

What about the book you're planning to write, though? Again, she sighs (a marginal sigh) and repeats her line: There's so many things I want to do, and it's so hard to fit them all in...

But yes, a book is on the cards, hopefully before the end of the year, and she says: I'd like to write it myself. Without saying anything about the other books, which I don't want to, I feel almost pressured to speak, otherwise there's this huge misrepresented area.

In one way it's ridiculous - I feel it's much too early to write a book, I've hardly done anything yet. But I really want people to be aware of reality - subjective reality, obviously.

It'd be about what it's like being me, my feelings, my friends, the people that I rely on. I need to be represented in a positive way, and I'll have to do it myself. (1981, RM)


A couple of years ago I read that you were writing a book. Did this ever come out - as I've tried everywhere to get it - ?

It was planned at one time, but I just could not find the time amongst my album projects; and perhaps I am not yet ready to write a book about myself. (1984, KBC 16)
