Life in Pieces

Listen to a sample

What to expect

*The Sunday Times bestseller*

‘Funny, intimate and honest’ Louis Theroux

‘Moving and funny. I absolutely loved it’ Claudia Winkleman

‘Heartbreaking, hilarious, comforting’ Marie Claire

Dawn O’Porter has been thinking a lot about life.
Mostly from a cupboard (and she’s definitely not hiding from her children).
 
Fearless, funny and unflinchingly real, Life in Pieces is a diary of a time we’ll all remember forever – laughing through the tears, finding comfort in the chaos and (in Dawn’s case, at least) discovering the life-changing properties of a midday margarita.
 
So if you need a shake-up in your life, here’s the tonic – with a perfect splash of tequila…

‘What should you expect? Tears, belly laughs and to come out the other side wanting Dawn O’Porter to be your best friend’ Marie Claire

‘I’ve rattled through it . . . Dawn O’Porter redresses the balance by telling it as it really has been: fighting a losing battle against a tide of mess, noise and need, and holding out for 5pm to crack open the tequila’ Mark Watson
