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.
