by Georgia Pritchett - £9.99  Faber & Faber (2022)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571365906 | ISBN 10: 0571365906

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

"Incredibly funny – if you’re a super-sensitive, anxious person, you will relate HARD. Whilst laughing hysterically."
(Caitlin Moran)
"Georgia Pritchett is a singularly hilarious person. Her book is a delightful and perfect reflection of her. It’s tenderness sneaks up on you and really packs a punch. What a magnificent read!"
(Julia Louis Dreyfus)
