**********************************************

For as long as she can remember, Grace Campbell has been told that she doesn't suit her name. But being graceful is no fun anyway.

Growing up in a world of privilege and politics, she had a lot to feel confident about. But she was also a record-breaker when it came to feeling shame. Shame about sex, shame about rejection, shame about mental health.

But over time, and with a 24 carat gold dose of female friendship, Grace has turned shame into a defiant sense of self. At only 27, Grace has got a lot to learn about being an adult, but she's already got a lot to share about being a disgrace, and how she came to be utterly, disgustingly, disgracefully proud of it.

This is the book every young woman should read, and every young man should worry about.

About the author










Grace Campbell is a chaotic force of nature who is on a constant, often hilarious mission to undermine the patriarchy. Also an acclaimed stand-up, law-changing feminist activist, and co-host of the podcast Football, Feminism + Everything In Between - with her father, Alastair Campbell.

Last year, after a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival, Grace launched The Disgraceful Club, a stand-up night in Soho for female and LGBTQ+ comedians which has one mission: to encourage people to own their shame.

Now, in this wildly outspoken debut, part-memoir, part-manifesto, Grace, a committed over-sharer, wants to tell you about her own relationship with shame, about how she learned to understand herself better, and ultimately become her No. 1 Fan.
