Running Away From Richard Summary

Running Away From Richard by Chrissie Manby

Recently graduated from drama school, Lizzie Jordan is looking forward to a glittering career at the RSC. She's also looking forward to the next step in her relationship: becoming Mrs Richard Adams (Lizzie just knows that her artist boyfriend is about to propose any day now).

So how does Lizzie, just one month later, find herself sharing a cockroach-infested house in Venice Beach, California, working as a waitress in a transvestite bar, and pretending to be the fiancee of one of the biggest directors in Hollywood? Why does life never seem to work out the way Lizzie Jordan planned?

A great novel * Company *
A great novel for anyone who's ever been dumped * Company *
A fun romp - perfect holiday reading * Woman's Way - Dublin *
Very funny, hugely feel-good, and the perfect antidote to anyone who worries that the only career ladder they've achieved is a run in their tights * Fiona Walker on LIZZIE JORDAN'S SECRET LIFE *
In the best tradition of Kathy Lette, this is girl power at its most painfully funny * Helen Lederer on DEEP HEAT *
