Published for the first time in 1994 and regularly re-edited and enhanced, True Stories returns again this year with six unpublished narratives related in Sophie Calle’s familiar precise sober prose and photography. By turns serious, hilarious, dramatic or cruel, these real-life tales represent a form of work in progress recounting fragments of her life.

One of the 21st century’s foremost artists, Calle here offers up her own story – childhood, marriage, sex, death – with brilliant humour, insight and pleasure.
