Winning a prestigious award, she agonized over receiving free gifts after the ceremony (It was an excruciating experience. I wasn’t familiar with the name of Georgia Pritchett, but unwittingly I was already familiar with some of comedic writing work from the satirical programmes and the recent amazing ‘Succession’, so this really was purchased on the basis of cover and enticing title and a great choice of narrator. This memoir, told in gloriously comic vignettes, is an utterly joyful reflection on living – and sometimes thriving sometimes not – with anxiety.

Zupełnie nie ma w nim czasu na przetrawienie ich, bo zanim się człowiek zatrzyma to już jest 5 historyjek dalej. Succession, just happens to be one of my favourite shows, I have always thought “this is so brilliantly written” – well now I know who to credit.

A good reminder that perhaps that life isn’t all beer and skittles and rivers of chocolate, regrettably.

That’s how Pritchett makes us see her beyond the glitter and glamour of celebrities she met or the awards she won. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). building a career for herself in a deeply misogynistic industry, managing high levels of anxiety since childhood, and dealing with parenthood later on.

Going into labor, she fretted about making a fuss ("Sorry to interrupt, but the baby is coming out of my body," I said politely).
