Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

'One of the few great writers of our time.' Auberon Waugh

Grossly misrepresented in her ghosted memoirs, Page Three glamour girl Debra Chase determines to set the record straight. Here then is the truth about her dizzy rise to fame via Tulse Hill's most revered fashion school, her liaisons with the entire Seathorpe soccer team and the lecherous Sir Monty Pratt MP, and her ensuing downfall. Written with sardonic wit and compassionate insight, this is a masterpiece of characterisation and a wickedly entertaining satire on British society.

Praise for Bimbo

  • A treat for sore brains - Spectator

  • A great tragi-comedy . . . this book is up there in lights with the funniest, the saddest and the best novels in English. It is wrought by a massive intelligence operating an exquisite and lacerating sense of irony - Daily Mail

  • Hilarious . . . with a ring of authenticity in every gleeful and sleazy line - She

  • It takes a hugely skilled wordsmith to make a banal world like Debra Chase's such compulsive reading . . . Read. Enjoy - Literary Review

  • The sort of story which will make you laugh until you cry - Scotsman

  • A finely crafted pastiche, as well done in its own way as Peter Ackroyd's Hawksmoor - GQ
