Why wish away your life waiting for 'the one' when YOU are, in fact, the one

Chloe Usher has just broken up with the love of her life. All her friends urge her to find another man before she disappears down the slippery slope to spinsterhood. One evening, after a particularly messy date and several gins, she realises she doesn't need an 'other half' to complete her. She is enough, just as she is. In an instinctive act of self-love, she announces that she is going to marry herself! The news goes viral and, in the sober light of day, Chloe finds herself thrust firmly into the public eye; suddenly she's the spokesperson for all the single ladies out there. The reactions from her friends and family are mixed, with some thinking she's completely lost the plot. Planning her wedding takes Chloe on a bumpy journey of self-discovery, showing the world that if you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?!

My Mad Dad

Robyn Hollingworth
Authors:
Robyn Hollingworth

'This is a wonderful, rather special book: funny, warm and loving but also thought-provoking and deeply moving. Absolutely unforgettable - ironically.' ADAM KAY, Sunday Times bestselling author of This Is Going To HurtInadvertent cross-dressing Attempted murder Jail break A waltz at a funeral A hernia the size of GuernseyHeartbreaking and darkly comic, these are the moments that litter the messy road from cared-for to carer, a journey that Robyn Hollingworth finds herself on when she's only twenty-five years old. Leaving London to return home to rural South Wales, Robyn finds that it's her old life - same teddy bears resting on her pillow, their bodies tucked under the duvet; same view of the garages behind which she'd had her first cigarette and first kiss - but so much has changed. Her dad, the proud, charmingly intelligent, self-made man who made people laugh, is in the grip of early onset Alzheimer's. His brilliant mind, which saw him building power stations and literally bringing light into the lives of others, has succumbed to darkness. As Robyn settles back in the rhythms of life in the rain-soaked vast Welsh valleys, she keeps a diary charting her journey as the dad she knew disappears before her eyes. Lyrical, poignant and with flashes of brilliant humour, My Mad Dad explores how in helping others we can heal ourselves. 'At some point the cared for become the carers...this isn't a shame and it isn't a tragedy and it isn't a chore. It is an honour. To be able to return the gift of love that someone bestows upon you is a gift in itself. This is a story of caring...''This is a wonderful, brilliant book that also made me laugh. Robyn writes so honestly and normally. I fell in love with her mum and "mad" dad.' VICTORIA DERBYSHIRE
