A hilarious and heartfelt A-Z of getting through the menopause, from comedian and national treasure Jenny Eclair.

‘If you’re after an in-depth medical or psychological insight into the menopause, I’m afraid you’ve opened the wrong book – I’m not a doctor . . . However, I am a woman and I do know how it feels to be menopausal, so this book is written from experience and the heart and I hope it makes you laugh and feel better.’

From C for Carb-loading and G for Getting Your Shit Together to I for Invisibility and V for Vaginas, Jenny’s whistle-stop tour of the menopause in all its glory will make you realise that it really isn’t just you.

Jenny shares the surprising lessons she has learnt along the way, as well as her hard-won tips on everything from dealing with an empty nest (get a lodger) to keeping the lid on the pressure cooker of your temper (count to twenty, ten is never enough).

‘I can’t say that I’ve emerged like a beautiful butterfly from some hideous old menopausal chrysalis and it would be a lie to say that I’ve found the ‘old me’ again. But what I have found is the ‘new me’ – and you know what? I’m completely cool with that.’
