S5 BONUS EPISODE! How to Fail: Philippa Perry and Sadie Jones

A live recording of a one-off How To Fail With Elizabeth Day special with authors Philippa Perry (The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read) and Sadie Jones (The Snakes) about How To Fail...At Families.

Recorded in front of a live audience at Foyle's bookshop on Charing Cross Road in London.

This episode is sponsored by Penguin Life, which publishes books by experts who share a passion for living well.


Philippa Perry's The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read is available to order here.

Sadie Jones's The Snakes is available to order here.


I am thrilled to be taking How To Fail on tour around the UK in October, sharing my failure manifesto with the help of some very special guests. These events are not recorded as podcasts so the only way to be there is to book tickets via www.faneproductions.com/howtofail

The Sunday Times Top 5 bestselling book of the podcast, How To Fail: Everything I've Ever Learned From Things Going Wrong by Elizabeth Day, is out now and is available here.


This bonus episode of How To Fail With Elizabeth Day was hosted by Elizabeth Day, produced by Chris Sharp and Naomi Mantin and sponsored by Penguin Life. To contact us, email howtofailpod@gmail.com
