Antonella Gambotto's extraordinary first novel takes on icons Jay McInerney and Tom Wolfe as it chronicles the ills of the twentieth century with a merciless eye. From the pretensions of the London literary set to social climbing in the world of well-heeled Sydney matrons, Gambotto's razor-sharp prose exposes the essential folly at the heart of modern society. Caustic, controversial, exhilarating and provocative, this is an unforgettable debut.

"The detail of the fiction verges on social reality - a warts and all rundown on Australian, American and UK society ... an erotic journey of self-acknowledgment."

Harper's Bazaar
