“I don’t know how she does it but Keggie has the ability to take the sideways moments in life, and paint them with such humour and folly and awfulness I go from snort-out-loud laughing to wonder. Here is a collection of tales of mistakes that verge from terrifying to everyday but told once again with Keggie’s rare blend of wit, warmth, zany fizz and plain honesty” Rachel Joyce

Ever been talked into buying a camel?

Or become a burglar by mistake?

Or accidentally drugged a friend on a blind date?

Keggie Carew has an unerring instinct for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, of putting her foot in it, and making a hash of things. From the repercussions of a missing purse, to boiling a frog, or the holiday when the last thing you could possibly imagine happens, Keggie has been there. She also has an enviable talent for recycling awfulness and turning embarrassment into gold. In prose that will make you laugh, wince and curl your toes, Keggie Carew shares her most humiliating, awkward, uncomfortable, funny, true, terrible and all-too-relatable moments in her latest book,  Quicksand Tales.

“Wonderfully written, very funny and full of life” Roger Daltrey
