Disgustingly talented. (The Guardian)
Wincingly funny. (The Observer)
Nat Luurtsema is definitely an original thinker. Her inventive, witty routines demonstrate a wonderfully warped logic, taken to the limits of imagination. (Chortle)
Nat's hilarious account of life with the folks will strike a chord with parents and their offspring everywhere! (Star)
Utterly unique, ludicrously funny (GQ)
Laugh-out-loud observational comedy... Fast, frenetic and scatologically funny, Nat's memoir keeps the jokes coming. (Marie Claire)
Side-splitting memoir (U magazine)
This is our favourite book of the year so far (Bella Magazine)

She clearly dials up her up own levels of life incompetence for comic effect…you don’t get into Oxford if you’re really Father Dougal meets Norman Wisdom, nor I imagine are her parents the Orwellian Camp Commandants with OCD she presents …but it’s all the better for some comedy exaggeration and her honesty & self-deprecation shine through the fiction.
You will laugh out loud and you will steal lines from her, I guarantee it. It’s one of the funniest books I’ve ever read.

A tale for the current age from Watford girl Nat. A warm writer with a great turn of phrase who now directs short films. Read and weep (for her).Published on 15 Jan. 2015 by Mr J D Brick
