Watkins New Titles: March 2020

F*cked at 40 by Tova Leigh
Released 3rd March, RRP £14.99

For every woman that has ever felt trapped.  A funny, raw and empowering mid-life-crisis-with-a-difference, vlogger, mother, lover, businesswoman and social media phenomenon Tova Leigh explores what the hell you’re supposed to do when you find yourself living a life you don’t remember signing up for.

When you find authenticity it’s hard to go back. It’s like opening a door to the truth and starting to breathe a new type of air. This discovery is what prompted Tova to write, and she doesn’t think we should be sorry for who we are. None of us.

What Doesn’t Kill You by Rachel Haynes
Released 10th March, RRP £10.99

Rachel Haynes survived bowel cancer, not once, but twice. There have been many unexpected consequences… this is her story. Exploring the ups and downs of treatment with sensitivity, humour and brutal honesty, Rachel reflects on the psychological impacts of survival not only on herself but on those who have supported her.

This book is a funny and enlightening story about physical survival and then the messy psychological legacy of unexpected survival.  Of wake-up calls that failed and an overwhelming urge to finally make sense of a life that Rachel was not expected to see. What lies beneath survival is the realisation that the end of treatment is not the end of the story.

Simplify by Bob Hillary
Released 10th March, RRP £10.99

How can we live more simply, learn to appreciate what we have and root our way of being in the Earth we have inherited? By living simply and becoming an Earth Warrior. As life keeps urging us to go faster, many of us are moving in the opposite direction… we are looking for SLOWNESS, for stillness, to live more natural, less complex lives.

Short, simple and refreshingly practical, Simplify offers 21 Earth Warrior practices to help us live more consciously and to cope with the ever increasing pace of modern life. Bob Hillary shares the lessons he learned living off the grid, exploring his ‘wild edges’ and practicing a slower, more attuned way of life.
