RAE’S BACK! But now it’s 1990. The Berlin wall is down and the Happy Mondays are up, really up, but the new decade’s brought new mortifications for Rae Earl and she’s MADDER and FATTER than ever. About to enter the most important year of her life – her actual bloody A Level year – everyone expects her to concentrate on schoolwork but how can she when Haddock’s backside is still a national treasure and revision at home is just NOT HAPPENING! It’s hell outside the house too, if hell was in Stamford, Lincolnshire, and punishment for sins was a fiery eternity of awkwardness.
In My Madder Fatter Diary, Rae reveals her real-life teenage diary once again, transporting us to a Britain instantly recognisable to those who remember Bryan Adams at the top of the charts and anybody who’s been eighteen and agonisingly embarrassed by EVERYTHING. It’s wet-your-knickers hilarious. It’s blub-your-eyes-out sad. It’s the touching, romantic, MAD, FAT story of what happened next.
