‘HOW TO BE MASSIVE is funny, affectionate, and very, very sharp. Almost social history and always great fun, this book is - well - massive.’ - Roddy Doyle

 

Through her popular Instagram account, ‘Your One Nikita’, illustrator Aoife Dooley has made the spice bag part of our everyday language. Informed by her experiences growing up in Coolock and affectionately parodying fiery working-class Dublin women, it provides the inspiration for her hilarious and brilliantly observed first book, How to be Massive. Its central character is the irrepressible Nikita.

 

Wha’s inside?


In How to be Massive Nikita shares her illustrated guide to being massive, including:


• Masso hair and how to hide a naggin in yizzer hun bun
• Eyebrows so on fleek even the Kardashians won’t have a patch on ye
• Contouring that’ll cover a five-spicebag-a-week double chin
• The essentials for yizzer ‘stun hun’ wardrobe – Penneys’ best
• Online dating and how to meet the fella of yizzer dreams or Tom Hardy
• Sorting yizzer heads righ’ out when ye have the worst hangover in the world
• Life hacks, like how to get yizzer air max pure white again

 

About the publication of How to be Massive, Nikita says:

 

“Me first book is comin’ yizzer way that you’ll be able to buy in the shops an all! Swear! I’m gonna teach yiz how to be bleddin’ massive step by step! I was born pure massive but I’m one of the lucky ones – came straight out of the Rotunda lookin’ like this. Lil’ beaut of a baby so I was. Not all of us are born stunnin’ though, so if you’re a rotten pox don’t be worryin’ – it takes devotion to be this stun hun. Stop!”

 

How To Be Massive is available on our website, Eason, Amazon and in all good bookstores.
