If you grow up in a world where wrinkles are practically illegal, going bald is cause for a mental breakdown, and women over size zero are encouraged to shoot themselves (immediately), what the hell do you do if you're, gasp ... DISABLED? Whatever body you're born into, the pressure to be normal is everywhere. But have you ever met a normal person? What do they look like? Where do they live? What do they eat for breakfast? And what the **** does normal mean anyway? This is the award-winning wobbly comedian Francesca Martinez's funny, personal, and universal story of how she learned to stick two shaky fingers up to the crazy expectations of a world obsessed with being `normal'.

Newspapers & Magazines
"Her observations and perspective are unique and powerful. This is a funny, compassionate and inspiring story of how 'being different' can become, with the right attitude, an unlikely advantage. Also, it's bloody funny and touching" * Russell Brand * "A cheerful optimistic belly-laugh broadside at prejudice and a wonderful testament to the power of "being funny", I love Francesca Martinez" * Steve Coogan * "A wonderful read! Warm, funny and unforgettable" * Jonathan Ross * "A very, very important [book] ... I can't think of a work that has so brilliantly expressed how a person disabled from birth sees herself" -- Dominic Lawson * The Sunday Times * "As entertaining as it is moving ... this book is a wonderful, funny, warm coming-of-age memoir about finding your own path in life. Long may she wobble. Five stars." * Viv Groskop, The Telegraph *
