About this deal

But there are times Pritchett reaches into more serious themes such as her own mental health, the me too movement, suicide ideation and the time her school friends made a teacher cry (that was sad). Pritchett is self-deprecating to the maximum – For example, I love the way she describes her shoulders as “Muppet Shoulders”. Her father is referred to as The Patriarchy, and her mother, The Witch, as a 4 year old Georgia thought God was Jimmy Osmond, and all the stories she was writing featured baby budgies falling from their nests and unable to find their way home.

I thought it might have reflected the authors process with coming to terms with her anxiety with references to instances in her childhood before diagnosis.This memoir is a joyful reflection on just how to live - and sometimes even thrive (sometimes not) - with anxiety. 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. The book also features what is possibly the most unexpectedly heartwarming segment that I've read this year, featuring the author taking her eldest son (who is undemonstrative by nature and does not like loud noises or crowds) to a large wedding reception for one of his beloved teachers. She addresses all these different aspects of her life with self-deprecatory humour balanced with emotionally charged moments.
