About the Author

Kathy 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 succes 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 (1988), 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.

Format: Paperback
I love Kathy Lette and her books so I pre ordered this thinking it was a totally new book from her. I was a bit wrong. So many jokes from her older books like Dead Sexy and How To Kill Your Husband are taken and aren't anywhere near as funny the third and fourth time around. Seemingly all of these characters are meant to be related but it was confusing and had nothing to do with each other.

It's only a short book; I hope Lette isn't running out of ideas yet trying to milk money out of us based on previous stardom. After I finished reading this I was left puzzled and let down; to be honest, when I turned the last page there was no inkling that that was the end of the book.

If you like funny, down to earth books and Kathy Lette, try her older, really great books such as Dead Sexy and How To Kill Your Husband.

Format: Paperback
This is a collection of stories loosely connected by its characters, a group of old school friends, most of which meet up in the final tale, Girls’ Night Out.
Although Kathy Lette’s strongly recognisable irony, wit and rapid-fire puns are disappointingly sparser than in her novels, when they do grace an appearance they’re as razor sharp as ever. Through her usual milieu of dysfunctional relationships she uses these stories to capture Aussie life (and low lifes) circa the late eighties; Aussie men, married men, fathers, New Age hippies, football groupies, first dates and surfer culture all come under her shrewd and acidic observations.
This is fledgling material and she appears to be still in the process of discovering her much mimicked (though never bettered) style through these short stories. The more sparing use of humour actually benefits in so far as letting the bleakness and desperation of her characters and their lives become all the more tangible; the short story format emphasising this further by necessarily leaving these glimpses of their lives unresolved. And yet, for this same reason, they fail to satisfy in quite the same way as her novels do. Nevertheless, they are still worth reading. If you have worked you way through the rest of her writings and still hungry for more, then I’d highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This book is the jewel Kathy Lette's canon - all her other work seem seems tame and rather dull by comparison.
This is essentially a collection of short stories told by Australian women. It is crude, lewd and often downright rude but it is but always funny. Anybody with delicate sensibilities should probably not read this - everybody else should.
