Losing It

Helen Lederer

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 one hilarious bound Helen Lederer has crowned herself Queen of Desperate. Desperately funny, desperately engaging, desperately readable and desperately adorable.”
Stephen Fry
“A wry and witty rallying call for women of a certain age. Comedian Helen Lederer's debut novel is full of witty one-liners.”
Daily Express
“Packed with hilarious scenes that had me laughing out loud, Losing It is an easy to read book that is hard to put down.”
