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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Before selecting this book from the library I read the back cover which suggested that this would be a really funny, interesting book; sadly, it was not.

Reading the book I found it to be strange, not at all funny and basically, hard work.

I read it to the end simply because it was the weekend, I had nothing else to read and the library was closed.

Who reviews these books?

Extremely disappointing.

I had high hopes for this book, but I found myself waiting for the story to start pretty much until the end when I realised it wasn't going to.

I read a lot of comedies, but I didn't raise a smile once reading this. I found it a pointless waste of my time!

Kathy Lette is a fabulous writer and this is her best book by far. I have reread it many times and still find it absolutely hilarious. I would advise everyone to read this book especially if they want a good laugh.
