Omtale: Cause Celeb
Disillusioned by her glitzy life in London and her desirable but cruel TV-presenter boyfriend, Rosie Richardson chucks it all in and spends four years running a refugee camp in Africa. Then famine strikes in a nearby province and an influx of starving refugees threatens to overwhelm the camp. Frustrated by the cautious response of the aid agencies, Rosie decides on a drastic short-term solution. She returns to London, breaks back into the celebrity circuit and brings the celebs out to Africa for a star-studded TV emergency appeal. "A champion first novel ...what makes it such a pleasure to read is its variety of tone: flip, flirtatious, serious, mocking and moving ...get hold of a copy of this book". ("Observer"). "A terrific achievement ...The camp scenes are as moving and funny as the original M.A.S.H.; she sends up the self-important 'mediacracy' with an insider's wit, and it's written at a romping pace with a cliff-hanger finish". ("Cosmopolitan"). "Sharp, gutsy and refreshing". ("Independent"). "Thoughtful, ironic and completely gripping". (Harry Enfield). "A brilliantly funny satire". ("Time Out").
