Publisher's Summary

Part autobiography, part self-help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman, part collection of synonyms for nunny, Sarah Millican's debut audiobook delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips - like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom postdivorce.

If you've ever worn glasses at the age of six, worn an off-the-shoulder gown with no confidence, been contacted by an old school bully, lived in your childhood bedroom in your 30s, been gloriously dumped in a Frankie and Benny's, cried so much you felt great, been for a romantic walk with a dog or worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is your audiobook. If you haven't done those things but wish you had, this is your audiobook. If you just want to laugh on a train/sofa/toilet or under your desk at work, this is your audiobook.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Equal parts hilarious and moving

This book should be read with tea and biscuits; as if chatting with Sarah herself.

I couldn’t stop smiling.

Loved this! My family is from the Northeast and listening to Sarah’s accent and slang and above all humor was like being wrapped in a warm blanket of home.

Thank you Sarah Millican for being every woman. For being totally honest and open and giving all of us 40 somethings the ability to laugh at ourselves and be kind to ourselves.

a beautiful autobiography

Loved ever minute of the book, couldn't stop listening once I got started.
Happy with my purchase, and happy to have gotten to know more about one of my favorite comedians.

A clearly lovely genuine person writes a smashing book

If you like humour, honesty, niceness, cake, cats, dogs and great honest writing, then read Sarah’s book.

Thank you Sarah, my dad was from Manchester so hearing your lovely accent, regardless of it not being mancunian, made this even better. You’re fab!

Awesome book

I love Sarah, this book was wonderful. I loved every minute of it, she made me laugh and I totally connect with her only a older version (ok much older version). Thank you Sarah ❤️❤️

Exactly what you expect from Sarah

She also narrates it herself, so you get her humor unfiltered - not through the eyes and ears of another reader, but from the author herself. Pure Geordie humor as you like it.

Charming, funny and open

I loved this uplifting memoir by Sarah Millican. She peppers her narrative with “fuck” but shares some really valuable insights about how to be more kind to yourself and others. Her accent is soft and relaxing and she is really enjoyable to listen to. #funnymemoir #british #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

I LOVE Sarah Millican!

I first saw Sarah Millican on some of my favorite British quiz shows: QI, 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown and the Big Fat Quizzes. She quickly became a favorite. She wickedly funny and beautiful.
This autobiography will make you laugh and cry. In a time when I thought all the clever comidians were in the past I find that there is hope for the quick wit and brilliant observations I thought had gone out of style. Thank you Sarah for bringing such a smile to my face!

Disappointing but probably my fault

I'd seen her on TV on programs like Would I Lie To You? ...I live in Australia...and she was funny and likeable, and the site recommended the title to me, however I found it overly crude and without the subtlety of the greats of English comedy over the years. They didn't need to be "in your face" like this. My mistake in not doing my homework, I guess.

Funny, witty, moving, honest. It was a great read. I don't usually go for audiobooks bit it made sense to hear this one and it was marvellous.
