A funny, riotous novel about a young women making it in a world where men hold all the power from the Sunday Times bestselling author of HOW TO BUILD A GIRL
I'm Johanna Morrigan, and I live in London in 1995, at the epicentre of Britpop. I might only be nineteen, but I'm wise enough to know that everyone around me is handling fame very, very badly.
My unrequited love, John Kite, has scored an unexpected Number One album, then exploded into a Booze And Drugs HellTM - as rockstars do. And my new best friend - the maverick feminist Suzanne Banks, of The Branks - has amazing hair, but writer's block and a rampant pill problem. So I've decided I should become a Fame Doctor. I'm going to use my new monthly column for The Face to write about every ridiculous, surreal, amazing aspect of a million people knowing your name.
But when my two-night-stand with edgy comedian Jerry Sharp goes wrong, people start to know my name for all the wrong reasons. 'He's a vampire. He destroys bright young girls. Also, he's a total dick' Suzanne warned me. But by that point, I'd already had sex with him. Bad sex.
Now I'm one of the girls he's trying to destroy.
He needs to be stopped.
But how can one woman stop a bad, famous, powerful man?
