My Mess Is a Bit of a Life

Georgia Pritchett
AUD $27.99

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

'Funny, moving, insightful, vulnerable. A brave book and a brilliant read.' - Miranda Hart

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) to being offered free gifts after an award ceremony (It was an excruciating experience. Mortifying) worry has accompanied her at every turn.
