My Mess Is a Bit of a Life: Adventures in Anxiety (Hardback)Georgia Pritchett (author)
Bursting with laugh-out-loud humour and relatable anecdote, the successful screenwriter’s memoir traces her struggles with anxiety in gloriously idiosyncratic fashion.
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.
