Bryony Gordon survived her adolescence by dreaming about the life she'd have in her twenties: the perfect job; the lovely flat; the amazing boyfriend. The reality was something of a shock. Her Telegraph column was a diary of her daily screw-ups; she lived in a series of squalid shoe boxes; and her most meaningful relationship of the entire decade was with a Marlboro Light.

Here in the Sunday Times bestselling THE WRONG KNICKERS Bryony busts open the glamorized myth of what it means to be a young (perpetually) single girl about London town, and shares the horrible and hilarious truth. The truth about picking up a colleague at the STI clinic; sinking into debt to fund a varied diet of wine, crisps and vodka; and how it feels when your dream man turns out to be a one night stand who hands you someone else's knickers in the morning.

Bryony's wonderfully ridiculous and ultimately redemptive story is essential reading for everyone whose 'best years' weren't quite what they were expecting...

MEDIA REVIEWS
I laughed, I cried, I winced, I whooped, I ran out and bought it for all my single friends. A fantastic writer. * India Knight *
Eye-poppingly truthful and unexpectedly touching, this is the Bridget Jones reboot we were after. -- Alexandra Heminsley * Elle *
The Wrong Knickers is brilliantly funny, brilliantly honest, deliciously indiscreet and, at times, incredibly moving. It's the most truthful, evocative and hilarious account of what it is to be a twenty something girl in Britain that I've read in a very long time. * Polly Vernon *
Bryony Gordon is a very bad girl - and an even better writer. * Camilla Long *
Absurdly good * Grazia *
Anyone who has got halfway through their 20s to realise that adulthood isn't all they'd hoped will read this memoir of a misspent youth howling with recognition and helpless laughter. * Elle *
Any book that sees the protagonist exclaim the line, "Beyonce is an essence, not a human being" is literary gold as far as we're concerned... This book definitely needs a disclaimer - if you read it in public, you will definitely get some funny looks for guffawing quite a lot. * Heat *
If you want a real page-turner that will have you laughing out loud, then this is the book for you. * Bella Magazine *
Heart-and-snot-on-sleeve honest, The Wrong Knickers is the real Bridget in all her hopeless glory. * The Telegraph *
Candid and touching * The Independent *
The book is the equivalent of Bridget Jones, Carrie Bradshaw and Hannah Horvath exchanging slightly guarded handshakes, then realising they've all slept with the same terrible men...dark, funny, [and] honest -- Barbara Ellen * The Observer *
A memoir of one woman's Twenties that will make you laugh until you cry at some embarrassing sex stories, then throw your head into your hands about a crisis of personal finance * Emerald Street *

Review: wow I really enjoyed this book. I love a bit of non-fiction every now and then and this book was so true and so funny that I sailed through it in absolutely no time at all. I think I came to this book at a... More
