EAT, DRINK, RUN.
JERSEY OPERA HOUSE / FRIDAY 28 SEPTEMBER / 18.00 / £10
The new hilarious and inspirational memoir from Sunday Times no 1 bestselling author Bryony Gordon.
Bryony Gordon was not a runner. A loafer, a dawdler, a drinker, a smoker, yes. A runner, no. Yet somehow, as she began to recover from the emotional rollercoaster of laying her life bare in her mental health memoir Mad Girl, she started to realise that getting outside, moving her body and talking to others for whom life was also an occasional challenge, might actually help her. As she began to run further she started to see the limitations she had imposed on her life more clearly.
In April 2017, less than a year after she had weighed herself at over 16 stone but stepped off the scales and started training anyway, Bryony Gordon ran all 26 and 3/4 miles of the London Marathon. In her new, typically funny and hugely inspiring memoir, she shows us how extraordinary things can happen to us all, no matter what life throws at us, if we’re just willing to keep going.
In the 18 years that she has worked for the Telegraph, Bryony Gordon has become one of the paper’s best-loved writers and her columns on mental illness are receiving a phenomenally positive response from readers. She has over 42k followers on Twitter and is the founder of Mental Health Mates. Bryony is the author of the bestselling The Wrong Knickers plus The Sunday Times Number One bestseller Mad Girl which was nominated for a British Book Award. Her weekly column in the Sunday Telegraph has won her an army of fans who have followed her journey from single girl about town to – finally! – settled mum. Bryony is now 37 and lives in Nappy Valley (Clapham) with her daughter Edie and her husband, a financial journalist. The last sentence is one she never thought she would see written down on paper.
Bryony Gordon will be in conversation with author of Running Like a Girl Alexandra Heminsley.Go back
