A collection of rollicking, defifiant, real-life stories where self-improvement is satire and life-changing moments are found in the absurdity of our mysterious little lives.
From The Bathing Costume of Calamity to The Apron Strings of Lament and The Brassiere of Lovelessness, Alannah Hill shares hard-won wisdom from a career inthe fashion world (along with the fifine art of stickybeaking). Irreverent, provocative, self-deprecating and witty, Alannah tells us in her own imperfect way how she overcame adversity – and sometimes didn’t, despite
her best intentions.
In a world full of self-help clichés, contradictory messages and new-puritan rules, Alannah opens her bejewelled handbag of happiness, showing us how being a little bit wrong can sometimes be so very, very right.
