Every Lie I’ve Ever Told

by Rosie Waterland

‘I had made it! All my dreams had come true. I had an operating fridge, I was doing brilliantly, and I had written the memoir to prove it. I even had online haters. I had conquered life at 30 and nothing was ever going to go wrong again!

Then I downed a litre of vodka followed by 45 pills. What a fraud.’

It was all going so well for Rosie Waterland. Until it wasn’t.

Until, shockingly, something awful happened and Rosie went into agonising free fall.

Until late one evening she found herself in a hospital emergency bed, trembling and hooked to a drip. Over the course of that long, painful night, she kept thinking about how ironic it was, that right in the middle of writing a book about lies, she’d ended up telling the most significant lie of all.

A raw, beautiful, sad, shocking – and very, very funny – memoir of all the lies we tell others and the lies we tell ourselves.
