Product description

About the Author

Clare Bowditch is a storyteller who lives in Melbourne with her husband Marty, their three teenage children, a white groodle and one lone surviving free-ranging guinea pig. In terms of 'the fancy stuff', Bowditch is a bestselling ARIA Award-winning musician (Best Female Artist), Rolling Stone Woman of the Year (Contribution to Culture), Logie-nominated actor (for her role as 'Rosanna' on hit TV show Offspring), and a former ABC broadcaster who still misses her talk-back callers very much and hopes they're doing okay out there. In her spare time, Bowditch does a lot of public-speaking and event-running. She uses humour and the collective terror of 'public-singing' as tools to teach skills around courage and self-leadership. She is also the founder of Big Hearted Business, a love project designed to support creative people in their businesses and businesses with their creative thinking. As a musician, Clare has performed and toured with the likes of Leonard Cohen, Paul Kelly, Cat Power, John Butler, Snow Patrol and Gotye. The person she enjoys touring with the most is her drummer and husband, Marty Brown. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

'The words that kept coming to me over and over again as I read this book were authenticity and decency. Clare Bowditch made me feel how wonderful and difficult and amazing it is to be a human.' -- Leigh Sales

'Brutal at times but funny as f@#k. This book will change a lot of lives for the better.' -- Bernard Fanning

'Reading this book felt as intimate as having a long, heart-breakingly vulnerable yet hilarious conversation with Clare by a fire with wine in hand. It is a celebration of the human struggle, how we can learn to befriend (and say "f@#k off" to) our demons, and ultimately write our own story. There is so much hope in this book. -- Missy Higgins

'Clare Bowditch cements her status as one of Australia's most mesmerising storytellers with this debut. Her ability to lay bare the vulnerabilities, hurts and triumphs of a woman's life is second to none. She's my kind of girl, for sure.' -- Clementine Ford --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read
By Leticia on 3 February 2020
I loved this book! It was easy to read and a great account of how it feels to have mental health concerns. Hopefully people read this book, although they may identify with Claire, they will at least understand the depth of despair someone may feel when they are suffering with a mental health issue. Claire is just a regular person with a wonderful family. It can happen to anyone! Hopefully too, this book helps reduce some of the stigma that still exists around mental health issues. Beautifully written and a joy to read.
