A controversial, debate-provoking novel about growing older, taking risks and living for the moment, from the author of The Perfect 10.
Emmy is a make-up artist, about to start work on a forthcoming West End production of A Streetcar Named Desire, starring Hollywood legend Dolly Russell. It's a welcome distraction from everyday life with boring boyfriend Ben and keeps her thoughts from a recent indiscretion - the results of which she may have to live with forever...
As the production looms, an unlikely friendship develops between Emmy and the former star as Dolly tells Emmy about her astonishing life, and Emmy tries to find some answers, or the right questions for her own.
A brilliant and highly tropical novel, focusing on society's obsession with appearance, with being forever young, with starving off old age and with achievement.
