Publisher's summary

The instant Sunday Times best seller from the star of Netflix's The Duchess, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Your Face or Mine and host of All That Glitters.

I've come to accept that being audacious is a gift I can't escape.

People 'know' my on-stage comedy persona or my scripted ballsy characters and wrongly assume that at home, I must stomp around all day in designer dresses eviscerating those who dare to cross my path and denouncing the existence of men in general. But mostly, I'm just sat eating pickles and being nice to some dogs.

Whatever strangers think of me is fine with me. How audacious is that? I can always take a joke, I don't waste time worrying about things I can't control and I have zero anxiety. I embrace the reality that you just can't please everyone, so you might as well put yourself out there and have a laugh. As my mother always said, 'Katherine, if we all liked the same thing, we'd all be married to your father'.

I'm often asked how I developed my lurid level of courage and assurance and for tips on how others can match. The Audacity is my chance to share my blueprint for just that. You will learn:

  • How to become the most popular girl in school.
  • How to waste all your money on designer dogs.
  • How to attract toxic men...and keep them interested!

And so much more.... Plus, secrets! Secrets are my favourite things to be told and I figured I'd better tell a few juicy ones myself. Why not? No matter what I do, there will always be something about me that reads as simply, outrageously audacious. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

As if that wasn't enough, this audiobook includes exclusive content from my mum, Julie McCarthy. It's amazing. It's like a book within the audiobook.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Beautiful, Touching, and Deeply Funny

TV's Katherine Ryan is just so funny, both her writing and her narrating style had me laughing out loud on buses, trains, and the occasional walk around the neighborhood (basically, anywhere that could get me odd looks from strangers). She navigates the more serious topics with grace and humor, without ever seeming insensitive. Her mum's part is also really beautiful, and her delivery is so similar to Katherine's that it's impossible to ignore the (possibly bidirectional) influence. I highly recommend this audiobook, and will definitely listen to it again (and again and again and again).
