The hilarious feminist account of the female body by the award-winning comedian 'HILARIOUS' Daily Telegraph 'Brilliant' Frankie Boyle Sometimes Sara Pascoe confuses herself. She gets wildly and pointlessly jealous. She spends too much time hating her bum. And you know what she hates more than her bum? Her preoccupation with her bum. She's had sexual experiences with boys she wasn't really into, but still got a post-coital crush on them. She's ruined brand-new relationships by immediately imagining them going into reverse. There was so much about her behaviour that Pascoe wanted to understand. So she started researching what makes us - women - tick. And what she read made her eyes fall out of her face. Reader, here is everything science has to tell us about love, sexuality, infidelity, boobs, periods, pubes, broodiness, and clever old fat. Merry Christmas and Hallelujah! Suddenly being a woman doesn't look like such a minefield after all. 'Fresh and HONEST' Guardian 'Timely and INTELLIGENT' The Times 'FUNNY, sad, angry, affronted, engaging and ENLIGHTENING' Stylist

“Gender politics with a giggle”

Sara Pascoe's Animal, at first, seems to fit into the category of humorous musings but before long I realised that it was more than that. While being a very funny book and largely autobiographical it shows that... More

“Revelatory”

For me this was revelatory and reassuring. A great leveller.
Sara is funny, brave and knowledgeable.
I plan to gift this book to me nieces once they reach their teenage years.

“I learned what an obstetric fistula is (Y)”

I didn't even finish this book before I wanted to share it with others. With everyone. It's the kind of book I'd find myself buying several copies of just to pass to family, friends, strangers. To leave... More
