Summary

Audible exclusive. We invite Lindy West to the studios to talk about her new novel, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman. 'A memoir about the issues that have shaped my life. How to deal with trolls, feminist criticism of comedy and body image - to name but a few.' About Shrill: 'Women are told, from birth, that it's our job to be small: physically small, small in our presence, and small in our impact on the world. We're supposed to spend our lives passive, quiet and hungry. I want to obliterate that expectation....' Guardian columnist Lindy West wasn't always loud. It's difficult to believe she was once a nerdy, overweight teen who wanted nothing more than to be invisible. Fortunately for women everywhere, along the road she found her voice - and how she found it!
