Publisher Description

Judith Lucy was just Great!

Sure, the last remaining member of her immediate family had died, she was menopausal, she suspected her career was in the shitter and it seemed like the world was going to hell in a handbasket – but she was about to move in with the love of her life! Everything would work out because SHE HAD A MAN.

Then, in the space of twenty-four hours, her relationship came apart and so did she. A broken heart became the catalyst for a complete existential melt down. She was nearly fifty, suddenly alone and unsure about every aspect of her life.

How had this happened? Should she blame one of her four parents? What part had the comedy world played and was her disastrous history with men about more than just bad taste?

In her most candid and insightful book yet, Judith figures out what went wrong and then turns her attention to finding out what her life might look like if it went right. She tries everything from dating a tree to getting a portrait of her vulva done to swimming with a whale shark. Thanks to a series of revelations and a slight drowning experience, Judith slowly starts to realise that her life is still full of possibilities and despite death, heartache and a dry vagina it turns out … she’s fine.

Judith Lucy is searingly honest in this memoir. I worried at times while reading that she would not be fine, so involved was i in the emotional ups and downs of her story. I laughed out loud, hard, many times, and I cried. Judith Lucy is a wonderful writer and best of all was the fact that I could hear her distinctive drawl as I read. This is a fantastic book. Loved it!

Judy, over the top I know. But it is another steeping stone to stop me from doing the "stupid thing” and hell with it all just keep holding tight until my narrsistic ex-boyfriend narsistic that get off on other people pain ends ups pushing my completly over the edge. I love the pod cast and een reading the pages in the book I could hear you voive in my head as my eyes go down the page. I really do hope to hear my advantures or read them.
