Rhyan­non Styles

Diva (UK) - - Culture -

In 2012 – af­ter par­ty­ing hard, mak­ing her name in the bur­geon­ing east London queer per­for­mance scene, and find­ing a won­der­ful part­ner – Styles chose a new moniker, Rhyan­non, that would keep parts of her old self, while mak­ing space for the woman she was be­com­ing. The New Girl is a fresh, funny, ad­dic­tive book that should launch Styles into the pub­lic eye, as a writer to watch. Styles doesn’t shy away from con­fronting ad­dic­tion and men­tal health is­sues, but the light, ir­rev­er­ent, pacy writ­ing makes the dif­fi­cult jour­ney a plea­sure to read. The New Girl feels like vis­it­ing an old mate and catch­ing up on all the juicy de­tails from the years you’ve been apart. Bril­liant, witty, and life af­firm­ing. Head­line, £14.99
