  • Sharply observed and funny... Indecently entertaining... Beautiful.

    Fiona Sturges, Guardian
  • Funny, acerbic, sometimes despairing and brutally candid... A must-read for anyone out there, floundering, scared they're doing it wrong. The writing is great in The Hungover Games, but the humour and honesty are even better.

    Barbara Ellen, Observer
  • Outrageously entertaining.

    David Nicholls, i Newspaper
  • Brilliantly bawdy and movingly tender. A warm, generous and hilarious read, it's also a great listen: 2020 was the year I got into audiobooks and this one, read by the author herself, had me guffawing in public.

    Lynn Enright, Irish Times *Books of the Year*
  • Honest, moving and funny... Brilliant... [Heawood] has written a tender book about parental love that she and her daughter should be proud of.

    Susannah Butler, Evening Standard
  • Hilarious... It is a charming, diverting, indie flick of a memoir, a joy to gulp down.

    Alice-Azania Jarvis, The Times
  • Beautiful, laugh-out-loud, honest and, on occasion, heartbreaking.

    Sophie Cockett, Glamour
  • As funny as it is moving, The Hungover Games is a gorgeous read.

    Anna Bonet, Good Housekeeping *20 of the Best Nonfiction Books*
  • It's a deeper, funnier, realer, more poignant Bridget Jones. I have never read a more accurate account of what it feels like to be a parent, especially a single one.

    Philippa Perry
  • Beautiful, wild, painfully honest, hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking... a soulful, truthful homage to a life lived with appetite, intensity and wonder.
