Lush : A True Story, Soaked in Gin Paperback


Lushadj. Very rich and providing great sensory pleasure (Oxford English Dictionary)n.

A habitual drunkard (Oxford English Dictionary)'Arms linked, just as we did when we were seventeen, we teeter our way to the club, pausing to tug Emma's stiletto out of a drain cover and sling our empty wine bottle into the bin.

For the first time in a long while I feel truly happy.

I want to be standing arm-in-arm with my best friend, both completely pole-axed, for the rest of my days. And then it comes to me, with a stab: this is possibly our last night out together as free women...'Gabby and Emma have been best friends since primary school in Wales.

Emma has a stable job, a nice home and has just got engaged.

Gabby has had a succession of disastrous one-night-stands and five awful jobs since drama school . . . and she has just been diagnosed with scurvy. She has one year until the wedding to pull herself together and prove to her friends and family that she can be a proper grown-up. Described by Caitlin Moran as 'filthy, immoral and incredibly funny', Gabrielle Fernie's blog,, catalogued her life as a struggling actress with a taste for gin.

Here, in her first book, she shares more of her most raucous stories with eye-watering honesty.

It is a refreshing, frank and laugh-out-loud account of a young woman trying to find her place in the world; ultimately realising that it's fine to play at being an adult until she properly figures it out.
