Zupełnie nie ma w nim czasu na przetrawienie ich, bo zanim się człowiek zatrzyma to już jest 5 historyjek dalej. This book contains a series of vignettes depicting and inflating (no doubt) some of the most absurd elements of Pritchett’s life.

While at times I was thrown by just how jumbled everything feels, and trying to connect these often disjointed fleeting moments together, I also felt in tune with everything that was written. I liked the anecdotal style as I felt it was reflective of an anxious overthinking brain so it felt right. I’ll share with you some of the most memorable moments for me, only a small samples you understand – as I don’t want to spoil the whole book, in case you read it (…. Beginning with memories from far back in her childhood through her teenage years up to the present, Pritchett strings together anecdotes and musings about her life. Although the sense of humor is on point, it sometimes feels claustrophobic to put yourself in the author's shoes.Filled with warmth and humour, insight and honesty, it is a brilliant meditation on how to live with worry. Some of Pritchett’s experiences are heartbreaking, yet there is a matter-of-fact presentation of them and an ability to see humour in the darkest of situations. Delightfully offbeat, painfully honest, full of surprising wonders, and delivering plenty of hilarious, laugh-out-loud moments, My Mess Is a Bit of a Life reveals a talented, vulnerable, and strong woman in all her wisecracking weirdness, and makes us love it—and her—too. That’s how Pritchett makes us see her beyond the glitter and glamour of celebrities she met or the awards she won.

Louisa Joyner said: ‘Since opening Georgia’s manuscript my life has improved – never mind that the book is brilliant and funny and kind and generous and wise – I felt instantly that I had made a fantastic new friend on the page and I cannot wait to share that joy with a LOT of people.Her father is referred to as The Patriarchy, and her mother, The Witch, as a 4 year old Georgia thought God was Jimmy Osmond, and all the stories she was writing featured baby budgies falling from their nests and unable to find their way home. While she achieves professional success her personal life still throws her more curveballs - miscarriages, eventually having two sons (nicknamed 'The Speck' and 'The Scrap') who are diagnosed as being on the Autism spectrum, and then her life partner experiencing a potentially fatal health development. Through musings, vignettes, observations and recollections, Georgia takes the reader on a journey that is impossible to put down. Given my book obsession (hardly a secret), it is quite rare that I pick up a newly released book in my genres in Waterstones that I haven’t heard of before.

This is something I didn’t think would be possible when I compare my life (pottering round in Cheshire) with hers (pottering round the White House with celebrities). From worrying about the monsters under her bed as a child, to embracing womanhood, to being offered free gifts after an award ceremony, worry has. She has suffered some serious loss and faced several challenges but brings humor to sharing many of her experiences. And, reading other reviews, people seem to think the author’s names for parents, partner and kids are hilarious, I thought the opposite.Like Middlemarch, it has secrets, it has lies and it has an ongoing custody battle between my dog and me for ownership of my Starsky doll. From the earliest recollection, we have feelings of anxiety and fear, as well as a few laughs along the way.
