About this deal

In The Twat Files I will tell you about all the times I've been a total and utter twat. The moments where I've misunderstood stuff and messed up. In my life these have been key because: Managing director Louise Moore acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to The Twat Files from Robert Kirby at United Agents. It will publish 12th October 2023, alongside an audiobook edition released simultaneously by Penguin Random House Audio. One of the most enchanting tales is her whimsical yet unfulfilled tryst with Johnny Depp. The way French recounts her fanciful belief in their destined happily ever after, only for reality to play spoilsport, is both heartwarming and humorous. It's a testament to her storytelling prowess, weaving a narrative that's as fantastical as it is grounded in the bittersweet truths of life. When I was younger I wanted to be an interesting, sophisticated, semi-heroic, multi-layered person. BUT... That kind of perfect is impossible. Being an actual twat is much more the real me. Sorry to boast, but I am a champion twat.

The Twat Files are my stories of the times when I’ve been a total, utter twat. Time and time again, I’ve been a massive eejit. But the more I think about it, the more I understand that the moments where I’ve made mistakes, misunderstood stuff and messed up are key. That’s where all my learning happens and where I laugh the most. Being a twat is universal and my twatitshness is no different to yours. Except, perhaps, that mine has been horrifyingly public on occasion. My hope is that reading these stories of my twattishness might remind you of just what a massive twat you also are, that we might celebrate." My hope is that these stories might fire up yer engines to remind you of just what a massive twat you also are. Let's celebrate and revel in this most delightful of traits together.My hope is that these stories might fire up yer engines to remind you of just what a massive twat you also are.

Discover the truth behind the many, many times Dawn French has been a complete twat over the last sixty years. The Twat Files is described as “an anthem to imperfection”. The synopsis says: “Covering everything from first loves and flirting to onscreen crushes, from pony club to hippos to Elton John, Dawn recounts the many mishaps, misunderstandings and cringe-inducing moments that are the inevitable part of being gloriously, messily human. As laugh-out loud hilarious as it is warm and wise, The Twat Files brings together Dawn’s stories of love and loss, motherhood, friendship and family through one unifying concept – that Dawn French is a massive twat.” If you're coming to Coles by car, why not take advantage of the 2 hours free parking at Sainsbury's Pioneer Square - just follow the signs for Pioneer Square as you drive into Bicester and park in the multi-storey car park above the supermarket. Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. You don't need to shop in Sainsbury's to get the free parking! Where to Find Us In The Twat Files I will tell you about all the times I’ve been a total and utter twat. The moments where I’ve misunderstood stuff and messed up. In my life these have been key because: Announcing the book, she said: "I am documenting all the times in my life that I have been so far from perfect. In fact, all the times I've been an utter twat. And there are many, many, many examples; more than I ever thought."

The Twat Files are my stories of the times when I've been a total, utter twat. Time and time again, I've been a massive eejit. But the more I think about it, the more I understand that the moments where I've made mistakes, misunderstood stuff and messed up are key. That's where all my learning happens and where I laugh the most. This is a great read! I read it in a couple of sittings it’s that good. I loved the (un-shameless) name dropping too, and her voice really shines through – you can tell it’s Dawn telling the stories. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am recommending everyone read it to add some joy and make them feel better about their own twattish behaviour!

Shipments to the USA & Canada: Starting with some ‘twattish’ moments from her childhood (the story about the ageing pony and the saddle secured by tractor tyres made me laugh) then moving through to her teenage years and adulthood she documents all the incidences where she has behaved like a ‘twat’, made mistakes and embarrassed herself. By sharing those moments and laughing about them they are no less excruciating but much more acceptable as we all make mistakes and as she says ‘no regrets’. When I was younger I wanted to be an interesting, sophisticated, semi-heroic, multi-layered person.Writing via the marketing blurb, the Vicar Of Dibley star explains: "Nincompoop. Nitwit. Lunatic. Dork. All lovely . . . but . . . nah . . . I prefer Twat. It's neat and it's accurate somehow. Because, yes, I am a Twat . . . sometimes. Aren't we all? The Twat Files is more than just a memoir; it's a mirror held up to our own comical failings. French encourages us to embrace our inner 'twat', reminding us that our blunders are not just inevitable but also integral to our humanity. Her stories are a celebration of the joyfully imperfect journey that is life, and she invites us to laugh along, not just at her stories, but at ourselves too. That kind of perfect is impossible. Being an actual twat is much more the real me. Sorry to boast, but I am a champion twat.
