Synopsis

Losing It has been shortlisted for the PG Woodhouse Comedy Literary Prize as well as The Edinburgh First Book Award 2015.
Millie was at one time quite well known for various TV and radio appearances. However, she now has no money, a best friend with a better sex life than her, a daughter in Papua New Guinea and too much weight in places she really doesn't want it.

When she's asked to be the front woman for a new diet pill, she naively believes that all her troubles will be solved. She will have money, the weight will be gone, and maybe she'll get more sex.

If only life was really that easy. It doesn't take her long to realize it's going to take more than a diet pill to solve her never-ending woes...

Losing It is the hilarious debut from Helen Lederer, one of the UK's favourite comediennes.

In the media

Funny and touching.
WOMAN AND HOME (best new books)
Helen Lederer's novel perfectly blends her considerable talent as a comedienne with her skills as a writer into a super-funny but also resonant read. Loved it.
FREYA NORTH
Funny, witty, quirky . . . like the woman herself. Treat yourself.
