My Mess is a Bit of a Life – Georgia Pritchett


This memoir, told in gloriously comic vignettes, is an utterly joyful reflection on living – and sometimes thriving sometimes not – with anxiety.

About the Book:

“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) to becoming a mother (Birth is a beautiful thing, if your idea of beauty is a tractor pulling a combine harvester out of your vagina), Georgia Pritchett’s memoir takes us through a life lived anxiously. Filled with warmth and humour, insight and honesty, it is a brilliant meditation on how to live with worry.”
