Sue Baker's view...

Most of us pretend our teens and twenties are the best years of our lives but not many of us are as brave as Bryony Gordon and confess to the misery. This is not only the Wrong Knickers, but the Wrong Bed, the Wrong Drink, The Wrong Job and even at times the Wrong life.

Synopsis

The Wrong Knickers - A Decade of Chaos by Bryony Gordon

For years, women have been told that their twenties are their golden years, filled with fun, parties, sex and glamour. Countless TV shows and movies tell us the same story: this is your perfect decade - don't waste it! You'll never be so happy - or thin - again. Here, in her hilariously honest memoir, Bryony Gordon gives us a fresh perspective. Like Carrie Bradshaw, she may have had a column in a national newspaper, but her twenties weren't one long episode of Sex and the City, instead they were a decade of hangovers, heartbreak, and hideously awkward mornings-after, all over her overdraft limit.

Reviews

'I laughed, I cried, I winced, I whooped, I ran out and bought it for all my single friends. A fantastic writer.'

-India Knight

'Eye-poppingly truthful and unexpectedly touching, this is the Bridget Jones reboot we were after.'

-Alexandra Heminsley, Elle

'The Wrong Knickers is brilliantly funny, brilliantly honest, deliciously indiscreet and, at times, incredibly moving. It's the most truthful, evocative and hilarious account of what it is to be a twenty something girl in Britain that I've read in a very long time.'

- Polly Vernon

'Bryony Gordon is a very bad girl - and an even better writer.'

-Camilla Long

'Absurdly good.'

- Grazia

'Anyone who has got halfway through their 20s to realise that adulthood isn't all they'd hoped will read this memoir of a misspent youth howling with recognition and helpless laughter.'

- Elle

'Any book that sees the protagonist exclaim the line, Beyonce is an essence, not a human being is literary gold as far as we're concerned... This book definitely needs a disclaimer - if you read it in public, you will definitely get some funny looks for guffawing quite a lot.'

-Heat

'If you want a real page-turner that will have you laughing out loud, then this is the book for you.'

- Bella Magazine

'Heart-and-snot-on-sleeve honest, The Wrong Knickers is the real Bridget in all her hopeless glory.'

-The Telegraph

'Candid and touching.'

-The Independent

'The book is the equivalent of Bridget Jones, Carrie Bradshaw and Hannah Horvath exchanging slightly guarded handshakes, then realising they've all slept with the same terrible men...dark, funny, [and] honest.'

- Barbara Ellen, The Observer

About the Author

In the 13 years that she has worked for The Telegraph, Bryony Gordon has become one of the paper's best loved writers. Her weekly column in the Sunday Telegraph's Stella Magazine, How the Other Half Lives, has won her an army of fans who over the last four and half years have followed her journey from single girl about town to - finally! - settled mum. Bryony is now 32 and lives in Nappy Valley (Clapham) with her fiance, a financial journalist. The last sentence is one she never thought she would see written down on paper.
