For years, women have been told that their twenties are their golden years, filled with fun, parties, sex and glamour. Countless TV shows and movies tell us the same story: this is your perfect decade – don’t waste it! You’ll never be so happy – or thin – again.
Here, in her hilariously honest memoir, Bryony Gordon gives us a fresh perspective. Like Carrie Bradshaw, she may have had a column in a national newspaper, but her twenties weren’t one long episode of Sex and the City, instead they were a decade of hangovers, heartbreak, and hideously awkward mornings-after, all over her overdraft limit.
Told with Bryony’s trademark candour, humour and refreshing self-deprecation THE WRONG KNICKERS – A DECADE OF CHAOS is a memoir of a twenty-something Londoner who lived through her Bridget Jones years and survived. Embracing the messier side of life, it is a must-read for any woman who has survived, or is surviving, her twenties.
Polly Vernon: “The Wrong Knickers is brilliantly funny, brilliantly honest, deliciously indiscrete and, at times, incredibly moving. It’s the most truthful, evocative and hilarious account of what it is to be a twenty something girl in Britain that I’ve read in a very long time.”
Camilla Long: “Bryony Gordon is a very bad girl – and an even better writer”
