Eleanor Thom

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Women's health

How to live happily and well with endometriosis, from someone who has tried everything and lived to tell (and laugh at) the tale.

Eleanor writes as fearlessly as she has fought this disease; with heart, honesty and a humour that is rarely afforded to subjects as serious as this. Your head will explode with what you'll learn and your heart will explode with the courage of this author. She's truly extraordinary - Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Private Parts is just like its author: funny, brave, charming, honest, reassuring and ultimately brilliant - Joe Lycett

Like 1 in 10 women in the UK, Eleanor Thom has endometriosis and she thinks that it's time to talk a bit more about our private parts.

Part memoir, part guide book and part survival guide, Private Parts retraces Eleanor's own journey with endometriosis, offering readers practical, down-to-earth and friendly advice covering everything from what actually happens in an internal exam, to finding the right specialist for you, the perfect post-op wardrobe and to why you should look to Frida Kahlo for inspiration in your darkest moments.

Written for those looking to live well with their endometriosis and for those looking for help to understand the disease, this is a call to action for people to speak up about an illness which is still so misunderstood.

Features exclusive interviews with Hilary Mantel, Paulette Edwards, Lena Dunham as well as insights from experts in the field.
