Life according to Lubka Summary

Life according to Lubka by Laurie Graham

Pittsburgh was too small for Beryl Wexler. Barely out of high school, she changed her name to Buzz and set off for the bright lights of London. She never looked back. Now she's at the top of her game in the music PR business, looking after the coolest groups on the planet. And for a woman who was forty-two last birthday she certainly keeps up the pace. But her life is about to change. Some twenty-year-old has been given the new Japanese girl band predicted to go stellar, and Buzz is being sidelined.

Instead, Buzz gets to tour with the Gorni Grannies, Bulgarian singers of a certain age. These ladies may not be the tantrum-throwing celebs Buzz is used to, but they present other challenges. How to stop Lubka straining yogurt through her knee highs? How to dissuade Kichka from stealing everything not nailed to the floor? Fuelled by copious shots of home-brewed plum rakia, Buzz and Lubka address life's ups and down, until the world tilts and a different future beckons.

Life according to Lubka Reviews

'Hugely entertaining clash-of-cultures novel from the razor-sharp Graham ... a sunny book for sunny days' Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
'What a wonderful, life-enhancing, truly funny writer she is' Elizabeth Buchan. * Elizabeth Buchan *
'It embraces you with warmth and humour and makes the world a better place' Katie Fforde. * Katie Fforde *
'Graham wraps serious questions in glorious comedy. This scratchy, snappy heroine, a wonderful mixture of sass and solemnity, is a diverting addition to Graham's collection of highly original adventuresses' Sunday Times. * Sunday Times *
