The Art of Not Falling Apart

New Statesman’s Best Books of the Year, 2018
Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year, 2018

When life threw journalist Christina Patterson an involuntary-redundancy shaped curveball she decided to tear up the rulebook. Dreaming of revenge and irritated by self-help books, she set out to interview others who had found themselves picking up their own pieces. The result is a joyous, moving and honest celebration of life as an adventure, one where you ditch your expectations, raise a glass and prepare for a rocky ride.

How to Get Over Being Young

A deliciously funny and sage guide to midlife – an unscientific, flaws-and-all account of one woman’s adventures and misadventures through the dark comedy of the wilderness years.

Through her own experiences as a fifty-something woman, and those of her three sisters, her indomitable mum and rebellious auntie, Charlotte tackles the big questions every woman seeks answers to at this time of our lives – chiefly: How the hell am I going to get over being young in a world obsessed with youth?

Written with warmth, wisdom and irreverence this guide to midlife is perfect for readers of Nora Ephron, Caitlin Moran and India Knight.
