Publisher Description

What happens when you have an accidental baby on your own in your mid-thirties?

The Hungover Games is the true story of one woman's adventures in single-motherhood. It's about what happens when Mr Right isn't around, so you have a baby with Mr Wrong, a musician who tells you, halfway through your pregnancy, that he's met someone else - just after you've given up your LA life and moved back to England to be with him, so you're now six months up the duff and sleeping on a friend's sofa in an art studio in Dalston.

It's about what it's like raising a baby on your own when you feel more at home on the dance floor than in the kitchen. It's about how to invent the concept of a two-person family, when you grew up in a traditional nuclear unit, and your kid's friends all have happily married parents too, and you are definitely not, in any way, ticking off the days until all those lovely couples get divorced.

Brilliantly funny, unflinchingly honest and emotionally raw, The Hungover Games is the true story of what happens if you've been looking for love your whole life and you finally find it where you least expect it.

Review

Thought-provoking and insightful. Metro Finally the book that single mothers across the globe have been waiting for... Funny, dark and true. -- Caitlin Moran Reading The Hungover Games is a bit like having a new boyfriend: you think about it every second you're not with it and long for everyone to go away so that you can just lie down with it and savour its gorgeous, funny rudeness. -- Pandora Sykes It's a deeper, funnier, realer, more poignant Bridget Jones. I have never read a more accurate account of what it feels like to be a parent, especially a single one. I don't think Sophie thinks of herself as being a self-help author but this book will work as self-help for parents. Life is never perfect, it's messy, and it shouldn't be about how to be perfect it's about how to be with the mess. Be more Sophie. -- Philippa Perry The Hungover Games deftly explores expectations of modern womanhood through a beautiful, wild, painfully honest, hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking story. Full of adventure and awe, Sophie Heawood has written a soulful, truthful homage to a life lived with appetite, intensity and wonder. -- Dolly Alderton
