...a memoir gives a natural structure to a book, draws you in, and sometimes I wanted more of Freeman the woman, rather than Freeman the smart Daily-Mail-basher.
-Guardian

Synopsis

Hadley Freeman, Guardian features writer and author of the popular 'Ask Hadley...' column, reminds the modern lady to 'Be Awesome'. 'Being single is often awesome. You can leave a party when you want to, whether that be 9pm or 9am; you don't have to live in fear of ever hearing yourself described as "my better half"; and you can spend all day lying on the sofa in your pajamas watching "Murder She Wrote" and eating peanut butter straight out of the jar' Covering topics vital for any modern woman to consider (from 'How to read women's magazines without wanting to grow a penis' to 'Beyond the armpit: a guide to being a modern day feminist'), 'Be Awesome' tackles body image, sex, dating and feminism head on. With an attitude that is unfalteringly funny, smart and surprisingly heartwarming, Hadley Freeman is a voice of sanity that every woman should hear.

Like her columns, the writing is fresh, original, in-your-face. It's tempting to gorge on this collection at breakneck speed.
