Query: Would it be a serious breach of etiquette to run out on my own wedding? This is the question Becky Steele asks herself as she clings to the window ledge of her parents bathroom, grimly regarding the ten-foot drop into the dustbins below. She stares in disbelief at the meringue dress for which she has drunk only skimmed water for four weeks to fit into. Why can t Becky commit to Julian, human rights lawyer, and her Knight in Shining Armani? Yes, Julian s the right man, but has she had enough wrong ones? Lette, author of the international bestsellers Foetal Attraction and Mad Cows, brings her bawdy wit and uninhibited writing style to this tale of love, life, and relationships. Booklist Bad girls will love it. Sunday Telegraph Light, witty and exceedingly naughty. Mirror"

Kathy Lette

Kathy Lette is a celebrated and outspoken comic writer who has an inimitable take on serious current issues.

She is one of the pioneering voices of contemporary feminism, paving the way for Caitlin Moran and Lena Dunham. She first achieved succès de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film and a TV mini-series.

After several years as a newspaper columnist and TV sitcom writer in America and Australia, she’s written 11 international bestsellers in her characteristic witty voice, including Mad Cows, How to Kill Your Husband - and Other Handy Household Hints (staged by the Victorian opera) and The Boy Who Fell to Earth.

She is known for her regular appearances on BBC and Sky news programmes. She is an ambassador for Women and Children First, Plan International, the White Ribbon Alliance and the NAS. Kathy Lette lives in London with her husband, her autistic son (the actor Julius Robertson) and daughter, and can often be found at The Savoy drinking a cocktail named after her.

Kathy is an autodidact (a word she taught herself), but has honorary doctorates from Southampton Solent and Wollongong Universities and a Senior Fellowship from Regent’s College.
