*The Sunday Times bestseller*

‘Funny, intimate and honest’ Louis Theroux

‘Moving and funny. I absolutely loved it’ Claudia Winkleman

‘Heartbreaking, hilarious, comforting’ Marie Claire

Dawn O’Porter has been thinking a lot about life.
Mostly from a cupboard (and she’s definitely not hiding from her children).
 
Fearless, funny and unflinchingly real, Life in Pieces is a diary of a time we’ll all remember forever – laughing through the tears, finding comfort in the chaos and (in Dawn’s case, at least) discovering the life-changing properties of a midday margarita.
 
So if you need a shake-up in your life, here’s the tonic – with a perfect splash of tequila…

‘What should you expect? Tears, belly laughs and to come out the other side wanting Dawn O’Porter to be your best friend’ Marie Claire

‘I've rattled through it . . . Dawn O'Porter redresses the balance by telling it as it really has been: fighting a losing battle against a tide of mess, noise and need, and holding out for 5pm to crack open the tequila’ Mark Watson

Reviews

‘It is very funny but also intimate and honest’ Louis Theroux

‘Poignant and funny’ Red

‘I've rattled through it . . . There's been a lot of well-meaning but mad advice on how to contend with the strangest period of human history any of us has ever lived through. Dawn O'Porter redresses the balance by telling it as it really has been, for many of us: holding out for 5pm to crack open the tequila’ Mark Watson

‘Funny and heart-rending in equal measure’ Sunday Express

About the author

DAWN O’PORTER lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, her two boys Art and Valentine, her dog Potato, cats Myrtle and Boo, and fish Potamus.

Dawn is also the author of the novels The Cows and the Richard and Judy Book Club pick So Lucky.

Dawn started out in TV production but quickly landed in front of the camera, making numerous documentaries that included immersive investigations of Polygamy, Size Zero, Childbirth, Free Love, Breast Cancer and the movie Dirty Dancing. Further TV work included This Old Thing, a prime-time Channel 4 show celebrating the wonders of vintage clothing.

Dawn’s journalism has appeared in multiple publications and she was the monthly columnist for Glamour magazine. She is now a full-time writer of seven books – although she would probably have written seventeen if it weren’t for her addiction to Instagram Stories.
