My Anxiety Handbook by Sue Knowles, Bridie Gallagher and Phoebe McEwen - book review - Life Is An Adventure

When I heard that “Where’d you go Bernadette” was being made into a film (released in March 2019) I knew I had to read it.

There is also Bee’s relationship with her mother Bernadette, an agoraphobic who was once a thriving architect.
