Re-Sisters by Cosey Fanni Tutti

From the acclaimed author of Art Sex Music, a vital meditation on womanhood, creativity and self-expression, and a revelatory exploration into the lives of three visionary artists.


Myself, Delia and Margery – a trinity of the sacred and profane, sinners and saints of a kind.  Three defiant women with our individual, unconventional attitude to life.  Untameable spirits, progressive thinkers living within the inherent societal constraints of our times.

In 2018, boundary-breaking visual and sonic artist Cosey Fanni Tutti received a commission to write the soundtrack to a film about Delia Derbyshire, the pioneering electronic composer who influenced the likes of Aphex Twin and the Chemical Brothers.  While researching Delia’s life, Cosey became immersed in Derbyshire’s story and uncovered some fascinating parallels with her own life.  At the same time Cosey began reading about Margery Kempe, the 15th century mystic visionary who wrote the first English language autobiography.

Re-sisters is the story of three women consumed by their passion for life, a passion they expressed through music, art and lifestyle; they were undaunted by the consequences they faced in pursuit of enriching their lives, and fiercely challenged the societal and cultural norms of their time.

Peer & Press Reviews

Cosey Fanni Tutti has lived the life and has the stories to tell: not just hers, but those of two other still unheralded female pioneers.

Jon Savage, writer, broadcaster and music journalist

Sparked by coincidence and fuelled by strong feelings of like-mindedness, Cosey Fanni Tutti inhabits the lives of two famously iconoclastic women, Delia Derbyshire and Margery Kempe, clearly identifying them as both kindred spirits and profound sources of inspiration, and vividly blending their stories with her own.  The result is pure Cosey Fanni Tutti: passionate, original, and fiercely defiant.

Rupert Thomson, author of Barcelona Dreaming

Awe-inspiring.  This book is for anybody who wants to discover the work of three women who, without fanfare, have enriched our world.

Robert Wyatt, musician
