    Because I said so

    Society is making great strides in increasing awareness of oppression and injustice, but one group remain mistreated, with unequal human rights, and remains under-discussed: children. Commonly recommended parenting and discipline methods, such as sleep training, school isolations and public shaming treat children in inhumane ways that would cause uproar if adults would treated similarly. Children’s needs and feelings are frequently dismissed and ignored by adults. They are taught to blindly obey adults in the name of ‘respect’, though respect is so rarely shown to them by adults. This book is a blend of childcare history, sociology, psychology, anthropology and current affairs and pop-culture coverage, aiming to raise awareness of a much undiscussed issue, but one that will surely be spoken of increasingly in the future.

    As people, we are capable of both love and hate; amazement and disgust; fun and misery. So why do we live in a world that is constantly telling us to hate, both ourselves and others? We are told constantly to be repulsed by our own bodies, bodies that let us laugh and sweat and eat toast, amongst other activities; to be ashamed of pleasure; to be embarrassed by fun. In this brand-new collection, Hollie McNish brings her inimitable style to the question of what have been taught to hate, and if we might learn to love again.

    Mad woman

    What if our notion of what makes us happy is the very thing that’s making us so sad? Ten years on from first writing about her own experiences of mental illness, Bryony Gordon still receives messages about the effect it has on people. Now perimenopausal and well into the next stage of her life, parenting an almost-adolescent, just what has that help – and that connection with other unwell people – taught Bryony about herself, and the society we live in? What has she learned, and why have her views on mental health changed so radically? After coming out the other side of the biggest trauma of our living memory – a global pandemic – existing in a state of perma-crisis has now become our new normal. From burnout and binge eating, to living with fluctuating hormones and the endless battle to stay sober, Bryony begins to question whether she got mental illness wrong in the first place.
