We’re very happy to announce that Jessie Cave will be joining us here at Gosh! for a launch party to celebrate the release of her latest book Love Sick.
Actress, comedian, writer and artist Jessie Cave is truly a jack (and master) of all trades. She’s best known for her roles in the Harry Potter films as Lavender Brown and most recently in E4’s brilliant series Glue. Inspired by suffering from self-doubt, jealousy, a fear of failure and constant worry Jessie made it her mission to post a doodle a day onto her Twitter. No matter how personal the subject matter Jessie kept to her word, and soon found the experience became a cathartic compulsion that created hilarious sketches and won her 73,000 followers. Her brand new book Love Sick has been complied from these doodles and explores the process of liking someone, dating, falling in love, friendship, breaking-up and just becoming entirely Love Sick.
Publishers David Shrigley say: ‘Confessional, funny and brutally honest, the doodles in this book cover all the aspects of liking someone, dating, falling in love, friendship and breaking-up. They are born from the confusing and often embarrassing moments, feelings and situations that every woman faces in her day-to-day dating life.’
Jessie Cave said: “I am extremely excited to have a book coming out after doing a doodle a day online for almost 4 years now. It’s basically my diary. I feel very lucky to have Jake Lingwood and all of Ebury behind me and plan to keep on doodling!”
Jessie Cave will be with us on Thursday the 2nd of July from 7-9pm where we’ll be raising a glass to the release of Love Sick. If you can’t make it along to the launch party but would like us to have a book put aside for you then get in touch via email@example.com and we can arrange that for you.
As usual, we’ll also be offering a mail order service and can post signed books to you anywhere in the UK for a flat rate of £5 with international quotes available on request.
