Product description


I adored "The Understudy". It's a fantastic comedy ... delightfully written and makes you realise that even though some people are always cast as second best, that doesn't mean they're never winners. - New Woman

A comic genius - Maria Beaumont on David Nicholls

Brilliant... we would recommend it to anyone - Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan on STARTER FOR T

I laughed a lot - Jeremy Paxman on STARTER FOR TEN

Moving, wickedly observed, warm, uplifting and above all blindingly funny, Starter for Ten hits the spot time after time. Read this book - Jack on STARTER FOR TEN

A zippy comedy with laugh-out-loud lines, grounded on a solid plot and first-rate dialogue...irresistible - Daily Mail

Bitterly funny - Observer

Darkly funny and oddly romantic. - More

Book Description
