About
The debut book by award-winning comedian Francesca Martinez

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? Francesca was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when she was two years old and her parents were gravely told that she would never lead a "normal" life. 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 a very funny, very moving celebration and exploration of learning to be happy with who you are. Neither an autobiography nor a self-help book, it's a powerful and political call-to-arms that rails against the relentless media bombardment of what is culturally perceived as "normal." Award-winning wobbly comedian Francesca Martinez tell her 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." THE WOBBLY REVOLUTION STARTS HERE.
