Description
Information
It was the photograph in the New Yorker which started it all. They were three young‚ beautiful‚ red-haired girls‚ there granddaughters of a literary lion. They were News. But it was the row over the youngest's reaction to the attentions from one of Hollywood's biggest stars that made them Celebrities.

The family - the three sisters‚ their brother‚ their mother‚ their normally absent father - are sucked into a whirlwind of agents‚ producers‚ managers‚ photo shoots‚ paparazzi‚ journalists‚ stylists‚ parties‚ shows‚ a maelstrom they have no idea how to control.

The three girls - and their brother‚ an uneasy observer - experiment with life and change‚ and learn to survive‚ each of them differently. Each of them pays a different price in their relationship with each other‚ with their parents and in their beliefs in themselves and the civilisation around them.

Three Girls and their Brother is a novel to devour. The story is compelling‚ sometimes cutting‚ sometimes touching. The characters leap widely off the page. The setting and portrait of the celebrity scene is completely convincing‚ busy and yet intimate. Theresa Rebeck's first novel is a triumph.
