Sue Perkins - Author

About the Author

Sue Perkins is perhaps best known for being one quarter of double act Mel and Sue, where she plays the part of Mel. Together, the pair have bounced, shouted and gurned their way through countless hours of television, most memorably Light Lunch and its later counterpart, the imaginatively titled Late Lunch. Over the years, Sue has worked on a wide range of solo projects, including documentaries on art, popular fiction and history. In 2008 she appeared on the BBC show Maestro, culminating in her conducting at the Last Night of the Proms. She has also collaborated with food-critic Giles Coren on the Supersizers series, where the duo power-ate their way through five centuries of lungs, livers and testicles whilst half-cut on sherry. In the last couple of years, Sue has travelled extensively throughout Asia, driving the Ho Chi Minh trail, exploring the length of the Mekong River and getting felt up by a Cambodian hermit. She is a regular contributor to Have I Got News For You, Just a Minute, QI and The News Quiz and has been crowned, officially, The World's Greatest Liar in a hard fought contest in Cumbria. Oh, and apparently she does some cake show on BBC1.

Sue Perkins has ventured far and wide to bring you her brand new book. Pre order your copy now . . . _________ A few years ago I was asked if I'd like to make a documentary on the Mekong River, travelling from the vast delta in Vietnam to the remote and snowy peaks of Tibet. Up until that point, the farthest East I'd been was Torremolinos, in the Costa Del Sol. Here's the thing: I am scared of flying. I have zero practical skills. I can't survive if I am more than a three minute walk from a supermarket. For the last seven years I have suffered with crippling anxiety I bolt when panicked. I cannot bear to witness humans or animals in distress I have no ability to learn languages. I am a terrible hypochondriac Oh, and I am no good with boats. So I said yes. _________ PRAISE FOR SUE PERKINS 'Drama, tears and laughs ... I ADORED it' Jessie Burton, bestselling author of The Miniaturist 'Very funny ... reading her memoir is very like meeting her' Sunday Times 'Charming and funny .... Like going for a long, slightly drunken lunch with your naughtiest friend' Red 'Brilliantly written... fearlessly honest and full of heart, it will also make you laugh like a gibbon' Heat I absolutely loved it . . . whip smart and very funny' Woman & Home 'Warm, crisp and beautifully layered ... a complete delight' Independent on Sunday 'Deftly written and belly-laugh funny' Express 'Honest, warm and downright hilarious' OK 'Utterly wonderful.
