Standing in the Shadows of Giants

Author(s): Lucie Barât

A woman looks back on her youth as a struggling actress in early ‘00s London.

A comic retelling of minimum wage jobs and auditions for laxative adverts.

Unprepared for the sudden success of her younger brother (traditionally the weed-smoking black sheep of the family), she’s forced to face her own failure.

Dodging exes, sycophants and drinking dry the free bar, she eventually lands herself in rehab.

And while smashed against the proverbial rocks, realises and then accepts her sexuality.
