Is This OK? : One Woman's Search For Connection Online Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Persistently funny, ill-advisedly honest and deadly accurate' – Caitlin Moran'This book is a delight - very real and very entertaining' – Bob MortimerMusic journalist and self-professed creep, Harriet Gibsone, lives in fear of her internet searches being leaked.

Is This OK? is an outrageously funny and painfully honest account of trying to find connection in the age of the internet – from bad MSN boyfriends, to the tyranny of Instagram mumfluencers. Harriet spent much of her young life feeding neuroses and insecurities with obsessive internet searching (including compulsive googling of exes, prospective partners, and their exes), and indulging in whirlwind ‘parasocial relationships’ (translation: one-sided affairs with celebrities she has never met). Suddenly, with a diagnosis of early menopause in her late twenties, her relationship with the internet takes a darker turn, as her online addictions are thrown into sharp relief by the realities of illness and motherhood. 'Very funny and deeply moving' – Sara Pascoe'Hilarious and brutal!

I could not put it down' – Lou Sanders
