Product description

Review

"Portas writes with wit and verve... The book has the narrative charm of Anita and Me or The Buddha of Suburbia; so when the darkness comes it's genuinely shocking. Shop Girl is a testament to survival. But most of all it is a love letter to her mother, Mary Flynn. Every joke, argument, cake baked, tenderness proffered, sings off the page. 'To my mum - How lucky was I getting you' is the book's dedication. And we are lucky to read it." (Independent)

"Enormous fun, readable, nostalgic, poignant and authentic... Read it then give it to your daughter" (Daily Express)

"Absolutely fabulous... Colourful, camp and unexpectedly heart-rending, I loved it." (Caroline Sanderson The Bookseller)

"Her school stories are hilarious... a nostalgia-fest" (Heat)

"Portas's memoir is witty, fascinating and, at times, sad but always compelling" (Stylist)
