MY LITTLE BLUE DRESS is the sort of book publishers dream about. The memoirs of a female centenarian, born on 1 January 1900, one hundred years old on the first day of the new millennium, it is a life story to stretch the reader's imagination: the tranquillity of rural England at the turn of the century, the excitement of Paris in the 1920s, London during the Great Depression of the 1930s and the New York arts scene of the 1960s. And yet ...for a woman who claims to have lived through the twentieth century, our narrator, from the outset, seems not to know very much about its history. Or, for that matter, about being a woman. All is revealed as her story unfolds and the author's startling secret comes to light ...A love story and a murder mystery, MY LITTLE BLUE DRESS is a satire of Nabokovian cleverness and a glorious introduction to an exceptional literary talent.
