A Book For Her

A Book For Her was published by Century Random House on 2nd July 2015. It details Bridget’s ‘feminist epiphany’ – a fart in the Women’s Studies section of a bookshop in April 2012 – and her subsequent journey from the bowels of stand-up comedy to one of the most critically acclaimed British standup comedians this decade. If you’re interested in comedy & feminism, then A Book For Her is definitely for you. If you hate both then you should probably give it a miss.

You can read a couple of extracts from the book, as published in the Guardian G2 below;

1 – “Feminists never have sex and hate men opening doors for them, even into other dimensions”
2 – “We’re slicing ourselves up like a Solihull Toby Carvery on pension day”
