A comedy for anyone who has ever faced the blank page and survived it
Will’s writer mother flies in from New York and whisks Anna off to a Greek-island writing retreat, owned by her ex-lover, the writing guru James Loftus. Back home, Anna's relationship with Will descends into chaos and it looks like the wedding is off. An invitation to take part in a televised literary competition hosted by the unscrupulous Loftus creates further confusion.
Under the gaze of the camera, Anna navigates her new literary life. She is part of a TV circus, she has sold out. Will she manage to save her sanity, and her wedding, before she becomes a by-product of the literary world?
Praise for Jacqui Lofthouse's Novels
“A remarkable, often beautiful and startling piece of writing. A considerable achievement.” – John Mortimer.
“Deceptive; entertaining and unusual.” – Louis de Bernières
“A very impressive book… a superbly recreated historical period and a passionate investigation into femininity, all wrapped up in a mysterious and well-paced narrative.” – Jonathan Coe
