I carried a watermelon

Brand, Katy, 1979-2019
Books, Manuscripts
This is a love story to 'Dirty Dancing'. A warm, witty, and accessible look at how Katy Brand's life-long obsession with the film has influenced her own attitudes to sex, love, romance, rights, and responsibilities. It explores the legacy of the film, from pushing women's stories to the forefront of commercial cinema, to its 'Gold Standard' depiction of abortion according to leading pro-choice campaigners, and its fresh and powerful take on the classic 'coming of age' story told from a naïve but idealistic 17-year-old girl's point of view.
