Aussie Madeline Wolfe has left her home, her surfboard and her hemisphere for the new man in her life. Alexander Drake, indisputed King of the TV jungle, gives the best cunnilingus this side of a detachable shower nozzle. He's also the kind of bloke who goes through the Tunnel of Love holding his own hand. By the time Maddy discovers that it's not just Alex's feet but his entire body that's made of clay, she's taken a pregnancy test ...and failed. Will Alex chicken out of his obligation to his egg? 'Screamingly funny'. - Jilly Cooper. 'Buy this book'. - Sue Townsend.

Kathy Lette first achieved succes de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, now a major film. After several years as a singer in a rock band, a newspaper columnist in Sydney and New York, and a television sitcom writer for Columbia pictures in LA, she wrote Girls' Night Out, The Llama Parlour, Foetal Attraction , Mad Cows, Altar Ego and Nip 'n' Tuck, which have all become international bestsellers.From Publishers Weekly:
Like a literary meringue, Lette's newest (after The Llama Parlor, 1991) is light, fluffy and scarcely memorable. Madeline (Maddy) Wolfe, a free-spirited six-foot Australian with cropped red hair and a nose ring, is giving birth in an inner-city London hospital. As she goes through the agonies of childbirth, she looks back on her affair with Alexander Drake, a wildly popular TV zoologist. Maddy first meets Alex in Sydney, where he is investigating the sex lives of giant cleaner wrasses. Deeply in lust, she follows him to London. Maddy settles into his flat and takes a course at an upscale cooking school. There, over the haggis and kidney pie, she meets her soon-to-be best friend, Gillian Cassells, who's honing the skills she'll need to catch "Marquis Right." Upon Alex's return, Maddy finds herself thrown to the social lions, for whom a swell evening out might include a sneak peak at Robert Maxwell's autopsy. In the midst of her misery, Maddy learns that Alex is married?and that she is pregnant. Lette writes a lively prose, but her wit, raw and frenetic, is probably an acquired taste.
