A funny debut novel from a very funny woman.
A well-known face from television shows such as Absolutely Fabulous and Casualty, Helen Lederer has also been writing for a number of years as a columnist, commentator, wine expert and travel writer in newspapers and magazines.
Losing It is her first novel, a hilarious, brutally honest exploration of a woman who still feels 30 but can't deny the odd stray grey. Millie is in debt, divorced and desperate. Worse, she has no money, a best friend with a better sex life than her, a daughter in Papua New Guinea and too much weight in places she really doesn’t want. Can a middle aged woman really have it all?
Lederer’s first foray into full-length literature will appeal to comedy fans of all ages with Stephen Fry describing it as 'desperately funny, desperately engaging, desperately readable and desperately adorable.’
