Mad girl

Mad girl

Gordon, Bryony, author

On the surface it seems that Bryony Gordon has the perfect life. One of the UK's most successful journalists she is married to a man she loves with a two-year-old daughter she adores. Yet inside Bryony's head things are never as straightforward as they seem. Is it possible that she's murdered someone and can't remember? Why did her hair fall out when she was a teenager? Is she capable of hurting her daughter? Has she mysteriously contracted an STD? Why is she always so fat? For while Bryony does have a life many would envy, she is also engaged in a daily battle with mental illness. Fighting with OCD, bulimia and depression, like millions of others in this country, sometimes she finds it a struggle just to get out of bed. Here, in 'Mad Girl' she tackles all of these subjects with her trademark humour, warmth and eye watering honesty

Author note

has won her an army of fans who have followed her journey from single girl about town to - finally! - settled mum.

The last sentence is one she never thought she would see written down on paper.


I loved it. A brilliant fast and funny and frank look at something that absolutely needs to be talked about in this way
Matt Haig||Funny, warm and fearlessly honest. This book is a must for anyone who's ever lost their mind but was too polite to mention it
Sali Hughes||What a book! I read this like a thriller, I was so gripped. I feel comforted by this book; by the honesty, insight, compassion, and the beautiful writing. Mad Girl is going to be seismic
Marian Keyes||A powerful and intimate look at the way our minds can torment us, this honest and rather beautiful book will bring comfort to those who fear they are alone in their madness
