anxietyPraise for Kerri Sackville's When My Husband Does the Dishes ...'... this memoir will have you giggling all the way to the laundry basket ..." Australian Women's Weekly

'Everything from poorly planned Mother's Day gifts to TV versus sex is covered in this no-holds-barred memoir... girls, you will understand' The Saturday Telegraph

The Little Book of Anxiety is for anyone who has experienced anxiety-which is pretty much everyone.

It is a funny book about a serious subject: the ways in which anxiety can impact on your life and the lives of those around you.

With humour, insight and searing honesty, Kerri Sackville opens up about the trials and sheer absurdities of living a worried life.

From crazed nailbiting, to becoming hysterical in a jammed lift, to fearing her husband is dead when he's late home from work, Kerri has done it all.

If you know the agonies of sleepless nights, regularly jump to Worst-Case Scenario, or drive your loved ones mad with your irrational fears, then this book may very well save your sanity.

Kerri's first book When My Husband Does the Dishes ...A memoir of marriage and motherhood was published to enthusiastic reviews in 2011 by Random House.

Kerri has worked as a freelance writer for ten years, and in that time has written extensively for mainstream media, parenting magazines and websites, including the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Telegraph, Sunday Life magazine,, and many more.

She is currently a columnist for the Fairfax website Daily Life, and blogs at

Kerri's stories are usually funny, occasionally deeply moving, and always highly personal, and cover everything from weight loss to friendship, sex, parenthood and grief.

Kerri is married to Tony, a workaholic architect. They live in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney with their three children - a son aged 13, and two daughters aged eleven and four- and their recalcitrant bunny rabbit.
