Hurrah for Gin, Family law: marriage & divorce, Coping with anxiety & phobias, Family & relationships, Humour

The third book by Katie Kirby, creator of the bestselling HURRAH FOR GIN

People pleasing, social anxiety, instagram twattery and everything in between... Welcome to adulthood!

We spend our childhood wanting to be grown-ups and, when we get there, long for the simplicity of our youth and quake at the horrific responsibilities, demands and the unstoppable to-do lists that come with adulthood.

In her new book, Katie Kirby pinpoints with painful precision just how your crap life is now you're all grown up. Aside from the spiralling worries that shadow you wherever you go - peaking at around 3AM ffs: my leg hurts, I've not upgraded my operating system, should I become vegan? why haven't I done anything about carbon emissions?; there is your perverse impulse to say yes to requests for help and invitations to dinner with people you don't like and who have nicer hair than you.

Thankfully there is a silver lining, which mostly takes the form of lying to yourself, learning how to evade unexpected callers and cheating the system with your Tesco Clubcard.

Honest, relatable, hilariously funny and containing no useful advice whatsoever, take comfort in the knowledge that it's not just you, we're all f*cked.

My name is Katie and I live with my husband and two young sons by the sea In Brighton. I started blogging on a whim one night, probably under the influence of gin after a bad day. Through 'Hurrah For Gin' I try to give a real and humorous account of parenting young children - the happy, the sad, the good and the bad.
