Fall 2021 Drop-In: Michaela Coel’s MISFITS

Michaela Coel–BAFTA, Royal Television Society, Broadcasting Press Guild, and NAACP prize–winning actor, screenwriter, and director–joins Macmillan this Fall with her debut, MISFITS: A Personal Manifesto.

A powerful manifesto on how speaking your truth and owning your differences can transform your life.

In this sensational, agenda-setting debut, Michaela Coel, BAFTA-winning actor and writer of breakout series I May Destroy You and Chewing Gum, makes a compelling case for radical honesty.

Drawing on her unflinching Edinburgh TV Festival MacTaggart lecture, MISFITS recounts deeply personal anecdotes from Coel’s life and work to argue for greater transparency. With insight and wit, it lays bare her journey to reclaiming her creativity and power, inviting readers to reflect on theirs.

Advocating for “misfits” everywhere, this timely, necessary book is a rousing and bold case against fitting in.

MISFITS: A Personal Manifesto (9781250843449), coming September 7, 2021 from Henry Holt & Co.
