The Terrible

by Yrsa Daley-Ward - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781846149825 | ISBN 10: 1846149827

"A major literary talent... speaks about the power and powerlessness that young women are subject to in a wholly fresh, clear-eyed way... you'll find it hard to come away from The Terrible without a stab of recognition in your chest."
(Stylist)
'You may not run away from the thing that you are
because it comes and comes and comes as sure as you breathe.'

 
This is the story of Yrsa Daley-Ward, and all the things that happened - 'even the Terrible Things (and God, there were Terrible Things)'. It's about her childhood in the north-west of England with her beautiful, careworn mother and her little brother who sees things written in the stars.
 
It's also about growing up and discovering the power and fear of sexuality, about pitch grey days of pills and powder: going under, losing yourself, and finding your voice.
