As I was musing on what I had long suspected (that sport and beauty were incompatible), I fell over and just sort of died. And as I lay there, pondering the great void that swam before me, I was carried away by special creatures to a place where people go when consumed by too much disappointment, or weighed down by the consequences of burying too many feelings...

I always imagined that dying would liberate me from all awareness, thereby ensuring a certain freedom, but alas no.

Everything pretty much goes on as before except that you have to stay in the same outfit you arrived in and you cant find decent coffee.

Phillipa Finch has died from a broken heart. Is there anything that can bring her back..?

Emotional cowboys, red high-heeled boots, and what to wear when you are broken-hearted and don't want anyone to know are all rolled up in this original, funny book, with its sharp-eyed observations on the miscommunication in male-female relationships and its gentle compassion for the walking wounded in the ongoing skirmishes and occasional peace treaties between men and women.

      Comments about The Gradual Demise of Phillipa:

      A different kind of book, illustrated with pictures too and a very easy read. I think it took me less than an hr. a great book to read after a relationship break up, it puts things in perspective and reminds you that you aren't the only one it happens too. I loaned it to a friend as it's quite a funny read.

        This book is so funny, it is also really well laid out, you can sit & read it right through or just pick it up and read a page for a laugh. A fantastic gift especially for a lady, the thinking behind it is very relatable, we all know a phillipa finch.
