The extraordinary bestseller - a word-of-mouth literary phenomenon

I am afraid of being the disruptive woman. And of not being disruptive enough. I am afraid. But I am doing it anyway.

In this dazzling debut, Emilie Pine speaks to the business of living as a woman in the 21st century - its extraordinary pain and its extraordinary joy. Courageous, humane and uncompromising, she writes with radical honesty on birth and death, on the grief of infertility, on caring for her alcoholic father, on taboos around female bodies and female pain, on sexual violence and violence against the self.

Devastatingly poignant and profoundly wise - and joyful against the odds - Notes to Self offers a portrait not just of its author but of a whole generation.

“Unflinching honesty, breath-taking power”

One of the finest works of non-fiction I've read in some time, Notes to Self is a tour-de-force of self-analysis, memory, shared female experience and finely honed rage. I read it what felt like one long... More
