Description

This memoir, told in gloriously comic vignettes, is an utterly joyful reflection on living - and sometimes thriving (sometimes not) - with anxiety.

And 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.

Brimming with wit and honesty, My Mess is a Bit of a Life is the perfect nourishment for an anxious world.

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.
