"Encyclopaedia of an Ordinary Life" is a portrait of a life from A to Z, in which 'A' is for (amongst other things) the book's author and subject, Amy. It gathers together an informal, apparently random collection of the thoughts, memories, quirks, niggles, people, pets and places that all together get straight to the heart of how it feels to live an everyday life. How else could you go from Butterscotch, to Dishwasher, to Lacy Underwear, via the humble Napkin?Amy's voice is witty, generous and rings absolutely true. These delightful meanderings will make you laugh out loud and want to tell your friends.In a world saturated with stories of the extraordinary lives we aren't living, "Encyclopaedia" is a celebration of the just plain ordinary, in all its glory.
