The Wrong Knickers by Bryony Gordon - book review: 'Frank and funny brief encounters outshine Bridget'

If last year's latest Bridget Jones offering was something of a disappointment, then Bryony Gordon's memoir will remedy any unresolved chic-lit frustration. In candid and touching fashion, Gordon recounts her disastrous twenties as she veers from one screw-up headlong into another. From allowing one man to (unsuccessfully) snort cocaine off her breasts to having an affair with another, the beauty of these memoirs lies in Gordon's unflinching honesty. She makes mistakes; she is insecure; she wants to please others ad nauseam.
