How Do You Want Me?

The gripping, gruelling and hilarious autobiography by Ruby Wax

Sunday Times Bestseller

With a brand new introduction for 2020.

How Do You Want Me? is critically acclaimed as brutally honest, vivid and gripping.

Ruby Wax's unflinching revelation of a childhood poisoned, and a youth spoiled, culminates in a moving account of her breakdown and recovery. But How Do You Want Me? is also funny, rude and irreverent. It's unusually honest about fame and celebrity and happy to burst ego-balloons and golden myths.

A brilliantly fast, furious and surprising read from the inimitable Ruby Wax.
