Part autobiography, part self help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman, part collection of synonyms for nunny, Sarah Millican's debut book delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips - like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom post divorce.
Ah, lovely Sarah Millican. This book is just like sitting down with someone brilliant and listening to their stories, their advice, their lists. I have so much affinity with Sarah that I didn’t realise - the love of stationery, the lack of interest in having kids, the battle with self-esteem. Much to learn and love in this book. And actually, what’s great about it is that it’s not the kind of book that just says “everything will be fine, get on with it”, but is more like, “you know what, everything isn’t fine but you are and you can cope, and if you can’t, I’ll be here to help.” Which is just lovely.
There’s humour and heart, love and loss, and of course plenty of naughty moments, making a brilliant book.
