Private Parts

Private Parts

Eleanor Thom is living with endometriosis and she thinks that it’s time to talk a bit more about our private parts.

Part memoir, part guide book and part survival guide, Private Parts retraces Eleanor’s journey with endometriosis, offering readers practical, down-to-earth and friendly advice covering everything from what actually happens in an internal exam to the perfect post-op wardrobe.

Eleanor writes as fearlessly as she has fought this disease; with heart, honesty and a humour that is rarely afforded to subjects as serious as this. – Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Private Parts is just like its author: funny, brave, charming, honest, reassuring and ultimately brilliant – Joe Lycett

Written for the newly diagnosed as well as those who have had more operations than they can count on one hand, Private Parts is a friend and companion to everyone whose life has been impacted by this little understood condition. It will arm you for your doctors appointments and bring light and laughter in darker times.

Features exclusive inspirational interviews with Hilary Mantel, Paulette Edwards, Lena Dunham and Emma Barnett, as well as insights from experts in the field.
