The Actual One: How I Tried, and Failed, to Remain Twenty-Something for Ever

by Isy Suttie
£8.99   paperback  Orion Publishing Co (2016)

The Actual One: How I Tried, and Failed, to Remain Twenty-Something for Ever by Isy Suttie Isy Suttie - writer, comedian and actress - on not quite being a grown-up

"Isy Suttie turns the painful process of growing-up into something laugh-out-loud funny, and for that I could kiss her"
(Bryony Gordon, author of The Wrong Knickers)
"A cross between Lena Dunham and Victoria Wood"
(Sunday Times)
Isy woke up one day in her late twenties to discover that the invisible deal she'd done with her best mates - that they'd prolong growing up for as long as possible - had all been in her head. Everyone around her is suddenly into mortgages, farmers' markets and nappies, rather than the idea of running naked into the sea or getting hammered in Plymouth with eighty-year-old men. When her dearest friend advises her that the next guy Isy meets will be The Actual One, Isy decides to keep delaying the onset of adulthood - until a bet with her mother results in a mad scramble to find a boyfriend within a month.
 
From papier-m�ch� penguins to being stranded on a dual carriageway in nothing but a fur coat and trainers, The Actual One is an ode to the confusing wilderness of your late twenties, alongside a quest for a genuinely good relationship with a man who doesn't use moisturiser.
