- In stock
Beloved broadcaster and journalist Claudia Winkleman shares confidences in her brilliantly witty debut collection of essays, celebrating friendship, family and the little things that help us get through the day.
Funny, moving and truthful ... Quite
Claudia Winkleman's warmth, humour, no-holds-barred attitude and smoky eye have made her the favourite broadcaster of millions and a much-loved household name.
In this, her first ever book, Claudia invites us all into her world. She shares her observations on topics such as the importance of melted cheese, why black coats are vital, how it's never okay to have sex with someone who has an opinion on your date outfit, how nurses are our most precious national treasure, and why colourful clothing is only for the under 10s (if you're reading this sporting a bright red jumper and you're 9, great! If you're older, sorry).
This is a love letter to life - the real, sometimes messy kind. Quite celebrates friendship, the power of art, the highs and lows of parenting, and of course, how a good eyeliner can really save your life.
Heartfelt, wry and unmistakably Claudia, this book gets to the heart of what really matters.
