The powerful new collection of poetry and prose from Charly Cox, the woman described as social media's answer to Carol Ann Duffy. An Instagram poet and mental health campaigner, Charly’s work has been published in Refinery29 and in 2018 she was named as one of Elle magazine’s 20 power players to watch out for.

She Must be Mad explores coming-of-age: the pain and beauty of love, the relief and the agony of turning from a girl to a woman, the isolation of an untethered mind and the power and subjugation of the body.

Charly captures the formative experiences of today's young women from the poignant to the prosaic in writing that is at once witty, wry and heartfelt. Wayward nights out that don't go as planned; the righteous anger at those men with no talent or skill or smarts who occupy the most powerful positions in the world; the strange banality of madness and, of course, the hurt and indecision of unrequited love.

The first book from writer, producer and poet Charly Cox, She Must Be Mad is a powerful call to destigmatise mental health and a coming-of-age story for the modern world. For every woman surviving and thriving in today's world, for every girl who feels too much; this is a call for communion, and a reminder that you are not alone.
