Rosie Waterland is one of my favourite humans.
Not only is she one of the funniest writers on the interwebz, whose articles for Mamamia makes me snort tea on a regular basis (her Bachelor recaps are next level LOL), she’s also a survivor. As a former Houso kid, who grew up with addicts for parents, Rosie has risen above a lot of crap to get to where she is today, which is one of the most straight-up honest (see this) and hilarious (see this) writers going around.
So, the news that Rosie has been busy penning a memoir, The Anti-Cool Girl, set for release on August 28, excites me a whole lot. According to the HarperCollins website, it’s:
“A dark, funny and subversive memoir about surviving the very worst that life can throw at you, Rosie Waterland’s story of her coming of age is a blackly comic Australian memoir for our times and a clarion call for all anti-cool girls everywhere.”
“She is our Caitlin Moran, our very own Lena Dunham, and she will tell a uniquely Australian story, in only the way that a straight-talking Australian girl can say it.”
Sounds good, yes? Put a calendar reminder in your phone stat.
