The first book from acclaimed singer-songwriter Lily Allen is a series of essays exploring her life. It's about feminism, the tabloids, money, faking orgasms, bad managers, fame, sexual abuse, mental health, narcissism, co-dependency, festivals, motherhood, stalking and parking tickets. It's been a pretty packed life.

I'm strong. I can be tough. I've been broken. I'm opinionated. I'm a people-pleaser. I'm spoilt. I'm needy. I contradict myself. I try to do good. I want to do good. I'm impassioned. I'm observant. Most importantly, I tell the truth. And this is my story.


"An unflinching, unputdownable book" — The Guardian "A fascinating and very honest read" — Stylist "Her book might be the most explosive celebrity memoir ever" — Heat "A fresh, direct voice, used bravely, with nuance and style... Uniquely candid" — New Statesman "[Lily] writes with a rawness that leaves you breathless. An emotionally hefty read, it's hard not to be hooked" — The Herald "Allen has a flair for storytelling... [My Thoughts Exactly] should be required reading for anyone who dreams of fame" — Daily Telegraph
