One of Stylist‘s Best Memoirs for Summer 2021
Multi-award-winning television writer and producer Georgia Pritchett knows a thing or two about anxiety.
From worrying about the monsters under her bed as a child (Were they comfy enough?), to embracing womanhood, (One way of knowing you have crossed from girlhood to womanhood is that men stop furtively masturbating at you from bushes and start shouting things at you from cars. It’s a beautiful moment) worry has accompanied her at every turn.
This memoir is a joyful reflection on just how to live – and sometimes even thrive (sometimes not) – with anxiety.

'This book has enough dose of humour to be classified as a natural SSRI antidepressant.'
I'm SO excited about this.
'Had me laughing out loud, and then had me close to tears.'
A fantastically entertaining and surprising book. I knew I would laugh - and I did, several times on every page. She is hilarious – exuberantly funny, wickedly funny, wryly funny, darkly funny. All the funnies. But this book really shook my heart too. To read it is to meet the kindest, warmest, most wisecracking companion you could hope for. Georgia Pritchett is the new friend we all need right now.
‘A book that will stay with me for a long time … most definitely one I’ll be recommending to everyone.’
