Summary
'...a seriously funny book.' - National Post '...by turns hilarious and dark, always riveting, and crammed with satirical observations.' - Free Press A funny, poignant and intoxicating novel about fame, love, deception and consequences - about the lies we tell others and the lies we tell ourselves. I threw in a coin and I closed my eyes and I thought, I hope I've got enough Valium to see me through the week. One of the other mums chucked her coin in, and turned to me. She said, 'Do you think there will ever come a day when we'll make a wish that's about ourselves, and not about our kids?' A celebrity who's more notorious for her excesses than her famous roles. Her former lover, who's threatening to reveal the truth behind her bestselling autobiography. Her long-lost son, who's escaped from the train wreck of his mother's life and doesn't want to be found. Augusta Price (not her real name) is famous for playing a slatternly barmaid on a popular soap opera and for falling down drunk in public. Now, just out of rehab, with no job, no relationship, and a sad shortage of tranquilizers, she is surprised to find that her 'tell all' memoir has become an improbable hit. But how to stop the real truth from being revealed - and how to make up for a long history of neglecting those she really loves?
