The star of the HBO cable-TV show, "Tracey Takes On," presents her array of alter-egos, revealing their personal histories and their thoughts on their creator

Blackwell North Amer
Forever in a category by herself, award-winning actress and comic chameleon Tracey Ullman has been practicing her unique brand of comedy for American audiences for over a decade. First on her comedy variety show on Fox and then through her critically acclaimed hit HBO series, Tracey Takes On, Tracey has fashioned an astonishingly diverse gallery of richly imagined characters, each of whom has something profoundly amusing to say about the best and worst of the human condition.
In Tracey Takes On - the book - these vivid creations are given an opportunity to spout off on such loaded topics as mothers, royalty, and childhood. They're all here - Mrs. Noh Nang Ning, the wily donut shop owner who's a bottomless well of home-spun, donut-centric philosophy; Chic, the Middle Eastern New York City cab driver and unabashed Disco-machismo reactionary; the wickedly superior and detached Her Royal Highness; Trevor Ayliss, the endearingly contemplative gay flight attendant who's seen it all; Long Island yenta Fern Rosenthal; Sydney Kross, the slick, misanthropic criminal-defense lawyer; washed-up bombshell actress and shameless self-promoter Linda Granger; and many more, including Tracey herself.
