£9.99

On the surface it seems that Bryony Gordon has the perfect life. One of the UK’s most successful journalists she is married to a man she loves with a two-year-old daughter she adores. Yet inside Bryony’s head things are never as straightforward as they seem. Is it possible that she’s murdered someone and can’t remember? Why did her hair fall out when she was a teenager? Is she capable of hurting her daughter? Has she mysteriously contracted an STD? Why is she always so fat? For while Bryony does have a life many would envy, she is also engaged in a daily battle with mental illness. Fighting with OCD, bulimia and depression, like millions of others in this country, sometimes she finds it a struggle just to get out of bed. Here, in ‘Mad Girl’ she tackles all of these subjects with her trademark humour, warmth and eye watering honesty.

Description

‘A brilliant fast, funny and frank look at something that absolutely needs to be talked about in this way’ – Matt Haig

‘I felt comforted by this book; by the honesty, insight, compassion, and the beautiful writing’ – Marian Keyes

Bryony Gordon has OCD. It’s the snake in her brain that has told her ever since she was a teenager that her world is about to come crashing down. It’s caused alopecia, bulimia, and drug dependency, and Bryony is sick of it.

A hugely successful columnist for the Telegraph, a bestselling author, and a happily married mother of an adorable daughter, Bryony has managed to laugh and live well while simultaneously grappling with her illness. In Mad Girl, Bryony explores her relationship with her OCD and depression as only she can.
