'Funny, frank and inspiring.' - Lenny Henry
All her life, London longed to be a badass, an awesome bulletproof star nobody could mess with - someone who takes no shit - and in Living My Best Life, Hun, she lifts the lid on how she went from secretly writing Frasier fan fiction alone in her bedroom to taking Hollywood by storm.
It hasn't been an easy journey; from birthday parties gone wrong and dealing with bullies every step of the way, to getting blocked by Foxtons (long story) and being mistaken for the cleaner at a comedy competition (true story), London leaves no stone unturned. It took London some time to find her voice and her people, but now that she has, she's mentally high-fiving her fourteen-year-old self every day.
Frank, fearless and funny, Living My Best Life, Hun will inspire you to ditch the self-loathing, start the self-loving and engage with your inner winner.

"Hughes moves seamlessly between humorous self-deprecation and frank social analysis...(her) playful take on serious issues is irreverently charming, and the book will be especially appealing to Black women who have been gaslighted about the issues they've experienced in their own careers. Emboldened by the author's confidence, many readers will be able to put these insecurities to rest. A delightfully layered memoir about race, gender, and comedy." Kirkus Reviews
