Product description

Review

"Passionate, witty, informed, and gloriously opinionated" (Jacqueline Wilson)

"I felt like this was written just for me, and I think everyone will feel this way" (Jenny Colgan)

"THE most wonderful, funny, clever, charming, evocative book." (India Knight)

"A book for people who love books, by a person who loves books. Bookworms unite (or just sit in our separate corners and read!)" (Stylist)

"A delicously nostalgic treat that will make you want to pull out all those old favourites again" (Good Housekeeping)

"Artfully evokes that particular magic of reading as a child… Deliciously unrepentant, Mangan’s Bookworm makes a timely case not just for how vital reading is, but also for rereading books as a child, and how reading remains consoling, fortifying and, sometimes, magical." (The Sunday Times)

"A wonderful romp through the pages of childhood, illuminated by wisdom, humour and enthusiasm." (Bernard Cornwell)

"What Mangan does brilliantly is express the experience of reading and articulate the emotional connections we make with stories. She understands how books become entwined in our lives and help us make sense of the world. You don’t need to have enjoyed the same books as she has to recognise the pure, life-affirming joy of reading that Bookworm celebrates so eloquently." (The Observer)

"Lucy Mangan has enough comic energy to power the National Grid... We need this new memoir about her childhood of being a bookworm. It's enchanting." (The Spectator)

"To read Lucy Mangan’s memoir of growing up bookish is to be taken back to a time in life when reading wasn’t merely a gentle pleasure or mild obligation but an activity as essential as breathing." (Guardian)

About the Author

Lucy Mangan is a columnist for Guardian Weekend magazine and Stylist, and the author of My Family and Other Disasters, The Reluctant Bride and Hopscotch and Handbags.
