Pat Green takes us on a journey through her 50th year with humour, pathos, social and political ranting. She reminisces about her past - childhood, teens and young adulthood with candid revelations of rape, allegedly assaulting police officers, fancying the dinner lady and snogging all the boys in primary school! She recounts the heart ache of losing her brother to liver cancer and caring for her dying parents. She directs us through the psychological and physical challenges of giving up cigarettes whilst recollecting the many ‘mental' episodes throughout her life which she's no longer afraid to share. She thinks she's overweight and unattractive (menopause talking!) She actually looks quite presentable for nearly fifty! She's gay with a partner of twenty five years so she's not distracted looking for the perfect partner to tell her, her bum doesn't look big, she knows it does, and Susan wouldn't be so patronising!
