Sometimes life doesn't come ready-to-wear . . .
'My name is Katie Castle, and this is the story of how I had everything, lost it all, and then found it again, but not quite all of it, and not in the same form, and, if I'm perfectly frank (which, I have to confess, doesn't come naturally) not nearly so good.'
Katie's adventures in the world of London fashion, from the giddy heights to which she's already schemed via the warehouses of the East End, the glamour of Paris and the abrupt descent to the polyester nadir of Willesden, mark an exceptional debut on the fiction scene.
'The Favours And Fortunes Of Katie Castle' is a fabulously funny, sharp and totally unputdownable first novel from a great new talent.
