9781416580676: The Glamorous (Double) Life of Isabel Bookbinder: A Novel

Isabel Bookbinder is a twenty-seven-year-old assistant at the Saturday Mercury newspaper in London. She has a disinterested boyfriend, a mother who loves clothes that match, and a father who always expects her to do better.

Although Isabel may spend most of her time measuring newspaper column inches, she's well on her way to becoming a bestselling author. She's already perfected Her Look (cashmere track suit, lots of mascara), is working on her toned size eight figure, and gets up at dawn to work on her novel (well, sort of). She even has a fabulous mentor -- a bestselling but increasingly eccentric author who takes her to glamorous book parties and introduces her to the dreamy literary agent Joe Madison. But when she inadvertently exposes a political sex scandal and her name becomes known for all the wrong reasons, her glamorous double life starts to spin out of control.

With her distinctive voice, penchant for getting in sticky situations, and blind confidence in her dream of becoming a famous novelist, Isabel Bookbinder is a heroine that you can't help but root for.

From the Back Cover:

Isabel Bookbinder might not be leading the most glamorous life ever – measuring column inches at the Saturday Mercury isn’t exactly the job of her dreams – but luckily she’s developed a foolproof plan to change all that.

Reasons to become a bestselling author:

Plentiful opportunities to swish new Super-hair Sophisticated launch parties (with smoked salmon blinis) Am bound to captivate the delicious Joe Madison Can finally prove to father that Really Am Not a Waster

Potential setbacks:

Don’t yet have ‘Yoko’ bag, as carried by arch rival Gina D… or honed size-eight figure (useful for interviews) Hmm. Am inadvertently at the centre of a major political sex scandal Paparazzi are doorstepping my parents and boring boyfriend Russell Haven’t actually got round to putting pen to paper yet

Admittedly some of the setbacks are a little daunting, but Isabel’s sure that a woman of her ingenuity – and creativity – can find a way …

'I quite fell in love with Isabel. Funny, charming and accident prone, she is the perfect heroine for today' Penny Vincenzi
