Amazing Disgrace: A Book About "Shame"

Grace Campbell

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Humour

Grace Campbell has seen it all and done it all, and she's got some valuable advice for the first generation of women to grow up on the internet

'An outpouring of truth, wit, and beautiful comedic wisdom.' Katherine Ryan 'Such a funny and interesting book.' Sara Pascoe

'Finally my vagina has a voice!'
London Hughes 'Powerful, bold, vulnerable, beautiful, hilarious, universal, unique.' Scarlett Curtis

**********************************************

For as long as she can remember, Grace Campbell has been told that she doesn't suit her name. But being graceful is no fun anyway.

Growing up in a world of privilege and politics, she had a lot to feel confident about. But she was also a record-breaker when it came to feeling shame. Shame about sex, shame about rejection, shame about mental health.

But over time, and with a 24 carat gold dose of female friendship, Grace has turned shame into a defiant sense of self. At only 27, Grace has got a lot to learn about being an adult, but she's already got a lot to share about being a disgrace, and how she came to be utterly, disgustingly, disgracefully proud of it.

This is the book every young woman should read, and every young man should worry about.

Praise for Amazing Disgrace: A Book About "Shame"

  • Grace has written such a funny and interesting book, partly because she has a unique perspective of the world, but mostly because of her own brilliant mind

  • Part of me wishes I'd never met Grace, read this book and then dedicated my life to being her number 1 fan girl. This book is revolutionary. It's powerful, bold, vulnerable, beautiful, hilarious, universal, unique. It's going to change people's lives

  • Furiously funny, gloriously frank and surprisingly relatable. For a book about shame, Grace Campbell is unashamedly herself

  • This book is hilarious, Grace is a bloody badass, finally my vagina has a voice!

  • An outpouring of truth, wit, and beautiful comedic wisdom from the hilarious and laudably liberated Grace Campbell. As I feel the echoes of my ancestors' shame, Amazing Disgrace assured me that this inspirational new generation of young women are so much more than their fathers' daughters and their husbands' wives. They're honestly fucking MERCILESS. It's about time. I loved it.

  • It wins my prize for "best cover art of the year"...

  • An absolute riot. Brash, candid and casually obscene, this part memoir, part manual is a high octane adventure - Evening Standard

  • Revealing and amusing memoir - Times Radio

Grace Campbell

Grace Campbell is a chaotic force of nature who is on a constant, often hilarious mission to undermine the patriarchy. Also an acclaimed stand-up, law-changing feminist activist, and co-host of the podcast Football, Feminism + Everything In Between - with her father, Alastair Campbell.

Last year, after a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival, Grace launched The Disgraceful Club, a stand-up night in Soho for female and LGBTQ+ comedians which has one mission: to encourage people to own their shame.

Now, in this wildly outspoken debut, part-memoir, part-manifesto, Grace, a committed over-sharer, wants to tell you about her own relationship with shame, about how she learned to understand herself better, and ultimately become her No. 1 Fan.
