Read full description of the books:
I don't normally write reviews, but in this case I felt compelled to help counteract all the negative ones. I'm really surprised there aren't more positive reviews of this book on here (but then again I am a bit of a weirdo). I really enjoyed it! I picked it up because it was one of the only English books in a bookswap point in an old phone box in Germany, and I loved the 90sness of the cover (it turns out to have a very 90s feel in general, which might annoy some people, but I love that). The blurb on my copy doesn't really sum it up at all...it's about a lot more than love, sex, shallowness etc. (although those are some of the 'themes') - the blurb on here gives a better idea, but still doesn't describe it very well. I found it very, very, very fun! It's a silly, zany romp, kinda farcical, and at times exhaustingly fast-paced, but with a healthy dose of realism, and it made me laugh out loud quite often! I was initially put off by the subject matter of the first chapter, but then gave it another chance when I felt like something 'light', although it surprised me in that respect sometimes too, as it could be quite philosophical, serious and sad (yep, really!). Unlike this review, I thought it was actually really well-written (apart from Abe's accent, which annoyed me, a few offensive quips, and a few typos, at least in my 1991 edition), and it's pretty feminist, too, which is an awesome bonus. I always have a lot of books on the go, and although I'm reading some great stuff, nothing usually holds my attention for very long so I'm constantly switching between them every few chapters. But I was reading this one pretty much non-stop and I got through it a lot quicker than most of my books!

Read information about the authorKathy Lette divides her time between being a full time writer,
demented mother (now there's a tautology) and trying to find a shopping trolley that doesn't have a clubbed wheel.
Kathy first achieved succés de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, now a major motion picture.
After several years as a singer with the Salami Sisters and a newspaper columnist in Sydney and New York (collected in the book "Hit and Ms") and as a television sitcom writer for Columbia Pictures in Los Angeles, her novels, "Puberty Blues" (1979) "Girls Night Out" (1988), "The Llama Parlour" (1991), "Foetal Attraction" (1993), "Mad Cows" (1996),"Altar Ego" (1998) "Nip'N'Tuck" (2001), "Dead Sexy" (2003) and "How To Kill Your Husband (and other handy household hints)" (2006) became international best-sellers. Kathy Lette's plays include "Grommits", "Wet Dreams", "Perfect Mismatch" and "I'm So Happy For You I Really Am".
She lives in London with her husband and two children and has just finished a stint as writer in Residence at London's Savoy Hotel.
Kathy says that the best thing about being a writer is that you get to work in your jammies all day, drink heavily on the job and have affairs and call it research! (Although her husband says he should have the affair as it would give her a better book!)
