Published at the start of next month, WELCOME TO BISCUIT LAND by Jessica Thom is one of Souvenir Press’s big titles for this autumn. Jessica has Tourettes Syndrome, and the book follows a year in her life and all the ups and downs that go with it.
The book was featured in a huge double-page spread in yesterday’s Daily Mail, and the extract also appeared on their website (linked) – and that’s just for starters. No doubt you will be hearing much more from Jessica in the weeks to come. WELCOME TO BISCUIT LAND is published at the start of next month, but you can pre-order it now from Amazon at the discounted price of £7.00 (RRP £12.00).
One of this year’s most unusual stories, the book features a glowing foreword from Stephen Fry, who met Jessica when she appeared on his television show, Stephen Fry’s Planet Word.
Jessica’s words are courageous and optimistic in the face of the major challenges she faces every day. Moving, entertaining and unique, but never anything short of inspiring.
