    The Trick Is To Keep Breathing

    £9.99
    Jenni Fagan says:

    I read this over the course of a few days whilst living in a bedsit, in my mid-teens and out on my own in the world — this book called to me profoundly. Its depiction of isolation, of the less discussed or socially acceptable experiences women go through, the inner life, mental health, sexuality, consciousness, all of those things — are depicted utterly brilliantly in this book. It became one of my favourites as soon as I read it. It is a classic work of literature.
