9780007117895: The Favours and Fortunes of Katie Castle

Fabulously funny, sharp and totally unputdownable first novel from a great new talent

‘My name is Katie Castle, and this is the story of how I had everything, lost it all, and then found it again, but not quite all of it, and not in the same form, and, if I’m perfectly frank (which, I have to confess, doesn’t come naturally) not nearly so good.’

Katie’s adventures in the world of London fashion, from the giddy heights to which she’s already schemed, via the warehouses of the East End, the glamour of Paris and the abrupt descent to the polyester nadir of Willesden, mark an exceptional debut on the fiction scene.

Review:

‘I love this book! A fantastically sharp, witty novel, full of hilarious observations and wincingly good one-liners. I followed Katie Castle’s fall from fashion’s summit, and her subsequent mad scramble back to the top, with delight.’ Sophie Kinsella

‘Stylish and witty. I loved it’ Penny Vincenzi

‘Sharply observed and very amusing first novel’ Kirkus Reviews

‘How refreshing to meet a heroine who does not have a heart of gold beneath her minxish exterior…a mischievously witty picture of the hysterical, self-absorbed world fashion world…To say that Campnell subtly makes the the psychological point that self-knowledge is the key to change within a person perhaps over-eggs it. But it adds depth to a very funny, utterly delightful romp.’ Daily Telegraph

‘Sharply observed and very amusing first novel’ Kirkus Reviews

‘Related with stiletto bitchiness’ Elle

‘The joy of this sarky, stylish read is that waspish, selfish Katie doesn’t metamorphose into Mother Theresa and we like her even more for it’ Big Issue
