`Funny, emotional and deeply inspiring, this is perfect for anyone wanting to break out of their comfort zone' Heat 'I loved it! It's such a wonderful title, and the book lives up to it' Nigella Lawson What would happen if a shy introvert lived as an out-and-out extrovert for one year? Jessica Pan is about to find out... * When she found herself jobless and friendless, sitting in the familiar Jess-shaped crease on her sofa, she couldn't help but wonder what life might have looked like if she had been a little more open to new experiences and new people, a little less attached to going home instead of going to the pub. So, she made a vow: to push herself to live the life of an extrovert for a year. She wrote a list: improv, a solo holiday and... talking to strangers on the tube. She regretted it instantly. Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come follows Jess's hilarious and painful year of misadventures in extroverting, reporting back from the frontlines for all the introverts out there. But is life actually better or easier for the extroverts? Or is it the nightmare Jess always thought it would be? * `In a world of self-care and nights in, this book will inspire and remind you to do some things that scare you every so often.' Emma Gannon `Tender, courageous and extremely funny, this book will make us all braver.' Daisy Buchanan `A chronicle of Pan's hilarious and painful year of being an extrovert.' Stylist 'Excellent, warm, hilarious.' Nikesh Shukla 'You WILL laugh and laugh while reading this.' Sun

"Painfully hilarious" * Red *
"In a world of self-care and nights in, this book will inspire and remind you to do some things that scare you every so often." -- Emma Gannon
"A chronicle of Pan's hilarious and painful year of being an extrovert." * Stylist *
"Absolutely bloody great. As a textbook, concrete, public changing, foghorn extrovert, I find Jessica Pan's descriptions of introversion and shyness fascinating and she is very funny." -- Nell Frizzell
"Well, I adored this. Beautifully written, fascinating and so, so funny. Had me properly guffawing on the bus." -- Lauren Bravo
"Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come achieves what so many books claim (but then frankly fail) to do: making you laugh, while at the same time managing to inspire. Pan is a gem, and her introvert's exploration of extroversion is all at once delightful and deftly rendered." -- Sara Barron
"Relatable, moving, and fantastically funny." -- Rhik Samadder
"Hilarious, unexpected and ultimately life-affirming." -- Will Storr
