“There’s no social mobility at school; if you’re a dowdy nerd, you’re a dowdy nerd for five years. But the minute you leave, you can be a funny girl with nine GCSEs and the whole world ahead of her.”
I have to confess that the quote above wasn’t selected for any reason other than it was the only one I could find. I listened to this on audiobook and I forgot to make notes on good quotes I liked!
Overall, this was a good book. I like her no-shame approach to life and all the shit bits, it’s refreshing and empowering. Plus, she’s really frank about her experiences and feelings which is great to hear from a working-class woman comic. There’s a fair amount of amusing stories in the book which put a smile on my face while I was walking to work.
I’m not exactly a diehard Sarah Millican fan, but you don’t have to be to enjoy this autobiography.
