"Georgia Pritchett is a singularly hilarious person. Her book is a delightful and perfect reflection of her. It's tenderness sneaks up on you and really packs a punch. What a magnificent read!" - Julia Louis-Dreyfus

The Book

Georgia Pritchett knows a thing or two about anxiety.

This memoir, told in gloriously comic vignettes, is an utterly joyful reflection on living - and sometimes thriving sometimes not - with anxiety. From worrying about the monsters under her bed as a child to embracing womanhood to becoming a mother, 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.
