9781743310717: Lessons in Letting Go: Confessions of a Hoarder

An honest, uproariously funny, sometimes moving memoir of the year in which Corinne Grant decides to do something about her hoarding

It took a year to drag myself out of the mess. A year in which I lost my dearest friend and then promptly lost my way. A year in which I ran away overseas, came back and then ran away again. A year in which I learnt to let go, learnt to forgive and learnt to grow up. It was a big year. It was a lot of work. And I head-butted two people. Accidentally.

 This is the big-hearted story of how one of Australia's leading comic talents learned to reconcile love, loss, lack of closet space, and far too much stuff. From every scrunchie she's ever owned, to every pencil case and magazine, it's time for it all to go. The problem is, getting rid of the stuff turns out to be much harder than she initially thought. This delightful memoir is about hoarding and about how the things we hold on to can end up dictating our lives. Warm, hilarious, candid, and insightful, Grant's tale is about the pain—but also the necessity and the joy—in learning to let go.
