'Beautiful, wild, painfully honest, hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking' Dolly Alderton I had no idea how to commit to another human being. I could barely commit to reading a magazine, and I wrote for magazines for a living. My specialist subject was celebrities, and my own relationships made their marriages look eternal. I'd never paid a household bill that didn't mention bailiffs, and my idea of exercise was to go and stand outside a famous person's house and stare until I'd convinced myself that I lived in it. But my life in LA was happy; free of care and consequence. That was, until I came down to earth - with a bump. So this is the story of how I staggered from partying in Hollywood to bringing up a baby in Piss Alley, Dalston; how I never did find a copy of What To Expect When You Weren't Even Fucking Expecting To Be Expecting, and why paternity testing is not a good topic for a first-date conversation. People always said I'd find love where I least expected it. I always said they were idiots. **AN OBSERVER, EVENING STANDARD, RED AND COSMOPOLITAN BEST BOOK OF 2020**

La nostra recensione

Heawood writes with warmth and wit about life as a single mother. -- Rachel Cooke * Observer, *Books to Look Out For in 2020* * Raw and funny, Heawood's memoir celebrates the messiness of life and motherhood with boldness, panache, and unexpected moments of real poignancy. An uncensored and eccentric delight. * Booklist * Told with all of Sophie's trademark frank and fearless humour, The Hungover Games will be a glorious validation to all parents doing it solo. -- Sarra Manning * Red * Honest, moving and funny... It's brilliant... [Heawood] has written a tender book about parental love that she and her daughter should be proud of. -- Susannah Butler * Evening Standard * I adored this debut memoir about a voyage into single-motherhood, when motherhood was the last thing on the author's itinerary... Her account of what happens next is freewheeling, hugely funny (there's a particularly brilliant story about a visit to an LA gynaecologist) and genuinely soul-mining. A Best Book of 2020 for the Evening Standard and the Observer, it already counts Caitlin Moran and Dolly Alderton among its fans. -- Caroline Sanderson * Bookseller *Editor's Choice* * Rejoice! One of our favourite journalists Sophie Heawood - known for her hilarity and honesty - publishes her first book this year. It's a memoir about being a single mother when you haven't quite worked out how to look after yourself. -- Arielle Tchiprout * Red *The best books we can't wait to read in 2020* * Finally the book that single mothers across the globe have been waiting for... Funny, dark and true. -- Caitlin Moran Reading The Hungover Games is a bit like having a new boyfriend: you think about it every second you're not with it and long for everyone to go away so that you can just lie down with it and savour its gorgeous, funny rudeness. -- Pandora Sykes It's a deeper, funnier, realer, more poignant Bridget Jones. I have never read a more accurate account of what it feels like to be a parent, especially a single one. I don't think Sophie thinks of herself as being a self-help author but this book will work as self-help for parents. Life is never perfect, it's messy, and it shouldn't be about how to be perfect it's about how to be with the mess. Be more Sophie. -- Philippa Perry The Hungover Games deftly explores expectations of modern womanhood through a beautiful, wild, painfully honest, hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking story. Full of adventure and awe, Sophie Heawood has written a soulful, truthful homage to a life lived with appetite, intensity and wonder. -- Dolly Alderton
