From the author of Your Voice in My Head and Royals comes a beautiful, breath-taking, unputdownable memoir about love and heartbreak, sex and celibacy, growing up and starting again.

'It's woken me up' Minnie Driver, author of Managing Expectations
'The most delicious memoir that kept me in bed all day' Sophie Heawood, author of The Hungover Games

What happens when your story doesn't end the way you thought it would?

When the dream life you have been working towards becomes something you must walk away from?

When, after a life guided by romantic obsession, you decide to turn your back not only on marriage, but all romantic and sexual attachments?
