A Book for Her by Bridget Christie
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1 MB
Overview: The hilarious memoir from award-winning comedian Bridget Christie.
When Bridget Christie walked into her local bookshop, she thought she’d come out with a book (hopefully like you’ve just done). And maybe a calendar of cute photos of cats (hopefully unlike you’ve just done). The last thing she thought she’d be leaving with was the need for a new wave of feminism and the start of an incredibly successful career.
Up until that day, she hadn’t realised that misogyny was like shiny leggings: it had been making an unexpected comeback (and for the record, neither do ordinary women any favours).
From that moment, Bridget decided that the world should know that feminism is not embarrassing for women. In fact, she managed to find the humour in it. And she wasn’t afraid to answer the difficult questions all women wanted to know: why do fish stare at you during lap dances at Stringfellows? Do I need to have botox before heading to a pub quiz? Is bootylicious a new brand of feminism or an arse-flavoured bubble gum?
A Book for Her is Bridget’s story. But it’s not only a book for her, it’s also a book for you. And for him, if he’s not a dick. Or even if he is, he could learn something that might make him not a dick.
Oh and what happened in that bookshop? You’ll have read to find out..
