Product description


Alongside laugh-out-loud travel stories, the book also provides a moving account of her coming to terms with her father's death (Daily Mirror)

Vivid, laugh-out-loud, moving (Sunday Express)

Alongside a wealth of vivid and hilarious travel stories, Sue also writes movingly about coming to terms with the recent death of her father as she stands beside the Ganges (Daily Express)

An unvarnished, endearing and very funny account

(Woman & Home)

Part memoir, part travel guide. A fab account full of wit and emotion (Prima)

Her misadventures deliver laughs aplenty, but she's also engaged with the places, politics and crucially, the people. Enjoyable, interesting and often moving (Book of the month, Wanderlust)

Praise for Spectacles: (-)

Drama, tears and laughs - Spectacles has got it all. A brilliant, touching memoir suffused with love, it reminds you that life is best lived at wonky angles. I ADORED it (Jessie Burton, Bestselling author of The Miniaturist)

Very funny . . . It seems there are two Sue Perkins: the TV one, who gabbles and pratfalls, and the sensitive one who aches. The first of course, exists to protect the second. They can both write. The first writes comedy, the second tragedy; in this sense, reading her memoir is very like meeting her (Sunday Times)

It's a proper book . . . so well written. Tight & bright & full of inspiration (Chris Evans Radio 2)

Book Description

A brand-new travel inspired memoir from the fabulously funny, Sue Perkins.
