About the Author

Katy Brand is an award-winning writer, comedian and actor. After starting to write and perform comedy as a student at Oxford University, she became a regular on the UK live sketch comedy scene. In 2005 she took her debut Edinburgh show Celebrities are Gods to the Fringe which was immediately picked up for Channel 4 (Slap). This later became her award-winning ITV sketch show, Katy Brand's Big Ass Show, which she devised, wrote and starred in. It ran for three series and later became a nationwide live tour.


'It takes a true obsessive to open the mind especially to something one has always taken for granted. I knew I loved DIRTY DANCING but I didn't know why. Now, thanks to Katy Brand's hilarious, touching, bonkersly true book, I do. One of the best reads of the year.' Emma Thompson

'This is a book to massively enjoy (as I did) and then immediately hand on to your daughter (as I did)! I'm off to watch Dirty Dancing again immediately, and so will you when you read this gem.' Dawn French

'A joyful book, and such a thoughtful one, too.' Nigella Lawson

'An honest, moving, hilarious journey into how our youthful passions shape the people we become. Katy is the finest dance partner to take you on this journey.' Shappi Khorsandi

'A joyous, funny, personal page-turner. I read it in one sitting.' Deborah Frances-White, The Guilty Feminist

'a witty, endearing and surprisingly political take on her lifelong obsession with Dirty Dancing' The Bookseller

'I may be the only person on Earth not to have seen Dirty Dancing. Reading this book has been a revelation. I wish I hadn't missed that formative time in my womanhood-the sense of self-assuredness and possession, daring and joy that Katy has found in this film. Fortunately she has carried it forward with her and shares it all with us-with insight, wit and relatability-in this hilarious, poignant and revelatory read.' Desiree Burch

'A hilarious tribute.' Daily Express

'An invaluable guide.' The Sun

'Hugely evocative with Katy's trademark wit and warmth' Woman
