Sharp, candid and very funny essays from the broadcasting legends.

'Joyous, wise, reassuring and laugh-out-loud funny. I love these two women so much.' Elizabeth Day

'A book like no other. Honest and very, very funny. Some bits made me want to cheer - a sentence on parenting teenage girls was so good I may get it tattooed on myself, possibly in Hebrew.' Sara Cox

'If books were bubble baths... this was a truly luxurious read - filled with warmth, wit and wisdom. I enjoyed it so much that I actually felt guilty afterwards - books shouldn't be this enjoyable, should they?' Anita Anand

'You'll laugh, you'll nod your head so vigorously in agreement that you'll end up with whiplash and you'll buy a copy of this book for all your friends for Christmas. If you loved the late, great Victoria Wood, then you'll love Fi and Jane too.' Red magazine


Award-winning broadcasters Fi Glover and Jane Garvey don't claim to have all the answers (what was the question?), but in these hilarious and perceptive essays they take modern life by its elasticated waist and give it a brisk going over with a stiff brush.

They riff together on the chuff of life, from pet deaths to broadcasting hierarchies, via the importance of hair dye, the perils and pleasures of judging other women, and the perplexing overconfidence of chino-wearing middle-aged white men named Roger.

Did I Say That Out Loud? covers essential life skills (never buy an acrylic jumper, always decline the offer of a limoncello), ponders the prudence of orgasm merchandise and suggests the disconcerting possibility that Christmas is a hereditary disease, passed down the maternal line.

At a time of constant uncertainty, what we all need is the wisdom of two women who haven't got a clue what's going on either.

About the Author

Jane Garvey has worked in broadcasting since 1987. She was the first voice on BBC Radio 5 Live when it opened and presented the station's award-winning Breakfast and Drive programmes with Peter Allen. In 2007 she moved not just to Radio 4, but to Woman's Hour - and discovered she'd have to prove herself all over again. Just as listeners began to adjust to her, she decided she better leave before it was too late. She credits Fortunately - the hit podcast she does with Fi Glover - with saving her sanity.

Fi Glover currently is the voice behind The Listening Project on BBC Radio 4, and My Perfect Country for the BBC World Service. She worked at BBC Radio 5 Live for seven years, hosting shows like Sunday Service, with Charlie Whelan and Andrew Pierce, Late Night Live, and the Afternoon Show, before moving to BBC Radio 4 as the host of Broadcasting House and then Saturday Live. She now 'chunters waspishly along' with fellow host Jane Garvey about fellow BBC talent and their own lives on Fortunately.

Their shared BBC Sounds podcast, Fortunately, which won the Comedy Show of the Year at the Arias in 2018, and a silver Spotlight Award, has been downloaded more than twenty million times.
