Amazing Disgrace

Listen to a sample

What to expect

For as long as she can remember, Grace Campbell has been told that she doesn’t suit her name. But being graceful is no fun anyway.

Growing up in a world of privilege and politics, she had a lot to feel confident about. But she was also a record-breaker when it came to feeling shame. Shame about sex, shame about rejection, shame about mental health.

But over time, and with a 24 carat gold dose of female friendship, Grace has turned shame into a defiant sense of self. At only 26, Grace has got a lot to learn about being an adult, but she’s already got a lot to share about being a disgrace, and how she came to be utterly, disgustingly, disgracefully proud of it.

It’s the book every young woman should read, and every young man should worry about.

Critics Review

  • It wins my prize for “best cover art of the year”…

    Caitlin Moran
  • This book is hilarious, Grace is a bloody badass, finally my vagina has a voice!

    London Hughes
  • An outpouring of truth, wit, and beautiful comedic wisdom from the hilarious and laudably liberated Grace Campbell. As I feel the echoes of my ancestors’ shame, Amazing Disgrace assured me that this inspirational new generation of young women are so much more than their fathers’ daughters and their husbands’ wives. They’re honestly fucking MERCILESS. It’s about time. I loved it.

    Katherine Ryan
  • Grace has written such a funny and interesting book, partly because she has a unique perspective of the world, but mostly because of her own brilliant mind

    Sara Pascoe
  • Part of me wishes I’d never met Grace, read this book and then dedicated my life to being her number 1 fan girl. This book is revolutionary. It’s powerful, bold, vulnerable, beautiful, hilarious, universal, unique. It’s going to change people’s lives

    Scarlett Curtis
  • Furiously funny, gloriously frank and surprisingly relatable. For a book about shame, Grace Campbell is unashamedly herself
