Description

Home Truths

It was on her knees unpacking the dishwasher that Mandy Nolan had one of her most important epiphanies. ‘Life is not all about choice. Sometimes it’s about subjugating one’s own desires and ego at the service of the mundane. My daily rituals, my chores, the endless grind, this is the anvil that anchors my ego to the ground, that stops me floating skywards, becoming puffed up and unbearable…there are many people who would benefit from laundry therapy. I wonder when James Packer last washed his own undies?’

In Home truths, Mandy explores the symptoms and the roots of this love of comfort, tracing our deluded nostalgia for the past and the disappointment that is the result of going back to revisit the buildings and landmarks of your past. Everything seems so much smaller, stiller and less impressive. Places that were magical in childhood are exposed as ordinary in adulthood.

Women Like Us

Stand-up comedians Mandy Nolan and Ellen Briggs have joined forces for the first time to write a very funny collection of stories that examines what it means to be a woman, in today’s social media dominated world. And it ain’t always easy.

Thanks to biology, ageing and the complex requirements for social validation (i.e. wax yourself, lose weight, get bigger boobs, a smoother forehead, a smaller butt, no hang on, make that a smaller waist and a bigger butt) today’s women never run out of reasons to hate themselves or feel they ‘are not enough’. The messages are beamed from TV, from billboards, from magazines.

Well, Mandy and Ellen have had it. They’ve drawn a line in the sand … and this time they’re not going to sweep it up!
