NEW RELEASES: The Wrong Knickers by Bryony Gordon, and her five life lessons...

Ever thought that your twenties weren't as great as you had envisaged? If so, you're not the only one! In her recently-released memoir The Wrong Knickers, Telegraph writer Bryony Gordon looks back on the reality of her twenties, and the myth of glamorous London singledom. As part of the Hidden Prologues event, Bryony shared the five key life lessons that she had learned through her twenties - and they're fantastic...



Bryony Gordon survived her adolescence by dreaming about the life she'd have in her twenties: the perfect job; the lovely flat; the amazing boyfriend. The reality was something of a shock. Her Telegraph column was a diary of her daily screw-ups; she lived in a series of squalid shoe boxes; and her most meaningful relationship of the entire decade was with a Marlboro Light.

Here in THE WRONG KNICKERS Bryony busts open the glamorized myth of what it means to be a young (perpetually) single girl about London town, and shares the horrible and hilarious truth. The truth about picking up a colleague at the STI clinic; sinking into debt to fund a varied diet of wine, crisps and vodka; and how it feels when your dream man turns out to be a one night stand who hands you someone else's knickers in the morning.

Bryony's wonderfully ridiculous and ultimately redemptive story is essential reading for everyone whose 'best years' weren't quite what they were expecting...
