After the Storm

Author: Emma Jane Unsworth Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/05/2021

From the Sunday Times bestselling author of Animals and Adults 'Beautiful, hilarious, clever ... I loved this book' CLOVER STROUD 'Brilliant' NIKESH SHUKLA 'Truth and power and lots of LOLs too. I loved it' AMY LIPTROT 'Truly brilliant ... the best company for anyone going through the loneliness and isolation of new motherhood' JENN ASHWORTH 'Hilarious, heart-breaking and wise' LEAH HAZARD How did it come to this? I am tough, I am smart, I have lived alone. Now I am cracking, right down the middle... Six months after the birth of her son, Emma Jane Unsworth finds herself in the eye of a storm. Nothing - from pregnancy to birth and beyond - has gone as she expected. A birth plan? It might as well have been a rough draft! Furious and exhausted, her life is the complete opposite of what it used to be. She's swapped all night benders for grazed labia and Whac-a-Moling haemorrhoids. How did she end up here? In this brave and hilarious account of postnatal depression, Emma tells her story of despair and recovery. She tackles the biggest taboos around motherhood and mental health, from botched stitches and bleeding nipples to anger and shame. How does pregnancy adapt our brains? Is postnatal depression a natural reaction to the trauma of modern motherhood? And are people's attitudes finally changing? Dazzling and vital, After the Storm is a celebration of survival, holding out a hand to women everywhere.

Animales

Author: Emma Jane Unsworth Format: eBook Release Date: 21/11/2016

Laura y Tyler han vivido su decada de los veinte a tope, en un torbellino de fiestas que nunca se terminaban, una querencia por las drogas que ha ido de las ganas de experimentar con cierta cautela a colocarse con entrega absoluta, resacas que no acababan hasta el lunes por la manana... Sin embargo, las cosas estan cambiando. Laura se ha comprometido con Jim, un pianista clasico a quien no le gustan los desfases de Tyler y la mala influencia que esta tiene sobre su prometida. Jim intenta que Laura sea mas adulta, que se decida por un comportamiento aceptado socialmente, pero Tyler no esta dispuesta a dejarla ir tan facilmente. Una novela cruda e hilarante para una generacion atrapada entre una adolescencia tardia y la edad adulta, que se pregunta a que tiene que renunciar para crecer.
