Helen’s new memoir Not That I’m Bitter is on pre-order at Amazon and Waterstones - best to hurry! Given the nature of the content - it may sell out! Not That I’m Bitter is a powerful, frank and characteristically funny memoir revealing how choppy the waters could be - even in those ground-breaking, anti-Thatcher, Tory-bashing days, there was only room at top for so many women. For the rest, it was as much a struggle to be seen and heard in the world of comedy as in any boardroom or workplace, and just as difficult to avoid the predators. There’s something in Helen Lederer’s life-story that everyone can relate to. She pulls no punches, but every blow is wrapped in a laugh of recognition. Brilliantly written, revealing, and moving. Not That I’m Bitter is sweet, sour, and unforgettable.
Her first comedy Novel ‘LOSING IT’ published by Pan Macmillan was nominated for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize in 2015. Audio version available to download on Amazon.
Other published books include ‘COPING with HELEN LEDERER’ (Angus and Robertson), ‘SINGLE MINDING’ (Hodder and Stoughton), 'FINGER FOOD' (Quick Reads), as well as short stories in ‘GIRLS NIGHT OUT’ and ‘GIRLS NIGHT IN’ (Harper Collins).
