Demented narrator Rachel’s a kind of dysfunctional debutante. The daughter of vast wealth, she’s got through four marriages, endless drugs, breakdowns, therapy and rehab, all in search of the one thing money can’t buy. This is the love of her childhood sweetheart Jack, who’s with someone else and not interested.
The book’s a crazy mixed bag: sometimes dialogue, sometimes prose, moving back and forth in time and between degradation and glamour.
Restless Rachel might wake up in the Four Seasons penthouse, or sprawled on the floor with someone else’s wet dog.
Will she ever slow down and find happiness?
Very funny, fizzing with one-liners and sparkling with a febrile wit.
