Misfits Summary

Misfits: A Personal Manifesto - by the creator of 'I May Destroy You' by Michaela Coel

'Razor-sharp and as funny as I May Destroy You ... a gifted writer' Sunday Times | 'A perfect truth-teller of our time' ELLE | 'Leaps off the page' Observer | 'Comic and devastating' New York Times | 'Your self-help bible of 2021' Sunday Times

A Vogue, Vulture, Time Magazine , Observer and LitHub BEST AUTUMN READ
______________________________________________
From the brilliant mind of the creator and star of I May Destroy You and Chewing Gum comes a passionate declaration against fitting in.

Michaela Coel's MacTaggart Lecture touched a lot of people with her striking revelations about race, class and gender. But in the end, the person most impacted was Coel herself. Building on this speech, Misfits immerses readers in her deeply personal vision through powerful allegory and anecdotes - from her East London upbringing to her discovery of theatre and love for storytelling.

With inspiring insight and wit, she tells of her reckoning with trauma and metamorphosis into a champion for herself, inclusivity and radical honesty, and in telling her journey invites us to reflect on our own. By embracing our differences, she says, we can transform our lives. An artist to her core, Coel holds up the path of the creative as an emblem of our need to regard one another with care and respect - and transparency.

Misfits is a triumphant call for honesty, empathy and inclusion. This timely, necessary book is a rousing coming-to-power manifesto dedicated to anyone who has ever worried about fitting in.

Misfits Reviews

Astute ... Coel is a gifted writer. The text is razor-sharp and as funny as I May Destroy You -- Rosie Kinchen * Sunday Times *

Warm and funny ... A perfect truth-teller of our time

* ELLE *
Searing ... a call-to-arms book filled with her own life lessons. Prepare for this to be your self-help bible of 2021 * Sunday Times *
Her narrative power transcends the small screen. Coel's is a voice that jumps off the page, and it's one we're lucky to have applied to whichever story she chooses to tell * Vogue *
Leaps off the page ... [Coel] hits hard: funny, but also direct ... Coel is all about letting go of fear or, at least, of using it to find your way to something better -- Miranda Sawyer * The Observer *
