Telegraph columnist, and The Sunday Times Bestselling Author of ‘The Wrong Knickers’ which exposed the glamorised myth of what it was like to be young in London, returns in full force with a new book – Mad Girl. On the surface it seems that Bryony Gordon has the perfect life. One of the UK’s most successful journalists she is married to a man she loves with a two-year-old daughter she adores. Yet inside Bryony’s head things are never as straightforward as they seem.
Is it possible that she’s murdered someone and can’t remember? Why did her hair fall out when she was a teenager? Is she capable of hurting her daughter? Has she mysteriously contracted an STD? Why is she always so fat? For while Bryony does have a life many would envy, she is also engaged in a daily battle with mental illness. Fighting with OCD, bulimia and depression, like millions of others in this country, sometimes she finds it a struggle just to get out of bed. Here, in ‘mad girl’, she tackles all of these subjects with her trademark humour, warmth and eye watering honesty.
Join Arts for Hungerford and The Hungerford Bookshop in The Town Hall. Chairs and tables will be set-up café-style and a bar serving drinks and nibbles will be available.
So bring your friends, and get ready for a great evening. Bryony will be happy to answer questions afterwards and sign copies of her books.
Tickets £6 (include £2 off Bryony’s book).
