Description: Funny, moving and truthful … Quite
Claudia Winkleman’s warmth, humour, no-holds-barred attitude and smoky eye have made her the favourite broadcaster of millions and a much-loved household name.
In this, her first ever book, Claudia invites us all into her world. This is a memoir with a difference (owing to its lack of a plot – genuinely, how do people do that?), and Claudia shares her observations on topics such as the importance of melted cheese, why black coats are vital, how it’s never okay to have sex with someone who has an opinion on your date outfit, how nurses are our most precious national treasure, and why colourful clothing is only for the under 10s (if you’re reading this sporting a bright red jumper and you’re 9, great! If you’re older, sorry).
This is a love letter to life – the real, sometimes messy kind. Quite celebrates friendship, the power of Art, the highs and lows of parenting, and of course, how a good eyeliner can really save your life.
Heartfelt, wry and unmistakeably Claudia, this book gets to the heart of what really matters.
Hot Brands Cool Places Review
We absolutely love Quite by Claudia Winkleman. As we wait for the full return of BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing, this is the perfect accompaniment to your Saturday afternoon preparation.
Curl up with a duvet, a selection of snacks, essential refreshments, the perfect eyeliner and a copy of Quite. Ideally with a best friend so that you can share the best of the laugh-out loud moments; of which there are many, the memory of which will stay with you for days after to brighten those dark moments in your day.
Quite is a like a conversation with Claudia as she shares her thoughts, observations and wisdom on all aspects of life. Honest and at times moving, particularly when she talks about nurses and her children leaving home, but also hilariously funny with her descriptions of picnics, sports day, holidays, skiing, decorating, fitting rooms, and so much more!
This delightful book is funny, wise and uplifting. Highly Recommended!
