Reviews

  • Drama, tears and laughs - Spectacles has got it all. A brilliant, touching memoir suffused with love, it reminds you that life is best lived at wonky angles. I ADORED it

    Jessie Burton bestselling author of, The Miniaturist
  • Very funny . . . It seems there are two Sue Perkins: the TV one, who gabbles and pratfalls, and the sensitive one who aches. The first of course, exists to protect the second. They can both write. The first writes comedy, the second tragedy; in this sense, reading her memoir is very like meeting her

  • It's a proper book . . . so well written. Tight & bright & full of inspiration

    Chris Evans, Radio 2
  • Utterly wonderful. It's very, very funny and poignant and it's very Sue Perkins and that's the bliss of it

    Nina Stibbe, bestselling author of, Love, Nina and Man at the Helm
  • Relentlessly cheering, Spectacles is as charming and funny as Perkins herself. Like going for a long, slightly drunken lunch with your naughtiest friend

    Red Magazine
  • Brilliantly written... fearlessly honest and full of heart, it will also make you laugh like a gibbon

    Heat *****
  • I absolutely loved it . . . whip smart and very funny

    Fanny Blake, Woman & Home
  • Life, love and loss - it's all here ... Warm, crisp and beautifully layered - like its author,Spectacles is a complete delight

    Independent on Sunday
  • [A] deftly written and belly-laugh funny autobiography . . . Though she never suggests she might be remotely brainy, she clearly is. Her vocabulary makes Will Self's seem lacking, her writing is full of discreetly clever allusions . . . If she wants her readers to like her, she certainly achieved it with this reviewer who laughed and cried and secretly wants her as a best friend

    Elizabeth Fremantle, Daily Express
  • Sue's memoir will leave you feeling like you've made a new best friend. Introducing us to a cast of friends, family and love interests, and not forgetting a psychopathic nun, Sue picks apart life in a refreshingly honest, warm and downright hilarious way... Spectacles firmly cements her as an exciting writer of the future
