News: New Non-Fiction Menopause Book By Jenny Eclair

Quercus Books is to publish a refreshingly honest menopause survival guide Older and Wider by comedian Jenny Eclair. 

Jane Sturrock acquired world rights excluding US & Canada from Katie McKay and Richard Allen-Turner at Avalon.

From C for Carb-loading and G for Getting Your Shit Together to I for Invisibility and V for Vaginas, Jenny’s whistle-stop tour of the menopause in all its glory will make you realise that it really isn’t just you. Jenny will share the surprising lessons she has learnt along the way as well as her hard-won tips on the joy of cardigans, dealing with the empty nest (get a lodger) and keeping the lid on the pressure cooker of your temper (count to twenty, ten is never enough). 

Editorial Director, Jane Sturrock said: ‘I am thrilled to be publishing Jenny’s book. I’m amazed at how we still lower our voices when we talk about the menopause – how can something that will impact half the population still be considered a taboo? Jenny has no time for that mealy-mouthed earnestness and it is incredibly refreshing to read such a hilarious, irreverent and honest account of this stage of life. While there is no one size fits all menopause, I hope readers will find comfort in the fact that they are not the only one wondering what the hell just happened.’

Jenny Eclair says: ‘I can’t say that I’ve emerged like a beautiful butterfly from some hideous old menopausal chrysalis and it would be a lie to say that I’ve found the ‘old me’ again. But what I have found is the ‘new me’ – and you know what? I’m completely cool with that.’ 

Older and Wider: A Survivor’s Guide to the Menopause by Jenny Eclair will be published by Quercus in hardback on 2nd July 2020. Pre-order here.
