She’s still reeling from the blow of a gut-punch break up and grieving the death of a loved one. But that’s not it. She’s cried all her tears, mastered her crow pose and thrown out every last reminder of him. But that’s not helping. Concerned that she isn’t moving on, Mathilda’s friends push her towards a series of increasingly unorthodox remedies. Until the seams of herself begin to come undone. Tender, unflinching and blisteringly funny, What a Shame glitters with rage and heartbreak, perfect for fans of Emma Jane Unsworth, Dolly Alderton and Holly Bourne.
