THE EXTRAORDINARY #1 BESTSELLER - a word-of-mouth literary phenomenon 'Do not read this book in public: it will make you cry' Anne Enright 'Unsparing, formidable, raw. The kind of book you want to give everyone' Irish Times 'Complex, accessible, thoughtful... You will love these essays' Pandora Sykes, The High Low 'Fiercely feminist, fascinating. I have recommended this to several people. And I'm doing the same here' Sunday Times 'Every line pulses with the pain and joy and complexity of an extraordinary life' Mark O'Connell 'I am afraid of being the disruptive woman. And of not being disruptive enough. I am afraid. But I am doing it anyway.' In this dazzling debut, Emilie Pine speaks to the business of living as a woman in the 21st century - its extraordinary pain and its extraordinary joy. Courageous, humane and uncompromising, she writes with radical honesty on birth and death, on the grief of infertility, on caring for her alcoholic father, on taboos around female bodies and female pain, on sexual violence and violence against the self. Devastatingly poignant and profoundly wise - and joyful against the odds - Notes to Self offers a portrait not just of its author but of a whole generation.

Recensioner i media

A brilliant collection. * David Nicholls * A truly brilliant writer... A great book * Evening Standard * This compelling memoir crystallises the human experience and gives words to the feelings you never knew you had. * Sunday Times Style * Wry, shocking, winningly frank... What is most striking about the collection is its universality. [These stories] urgently need to be told. Pine does so with an honesty and vigour that are always uplifting * Guardian * light on its feet and goes in deep * Deborah Levy * an astonishingly fine book * Dublin Review of Books *
