Camberwell Beauty Reviews


'This comedienne has always been a novelist-in-waiting . . . Eclair's modern cautionary tale has the same bittersweet wit that shapes her stand-up set, but there's nothing remotely funny about its dark conclusion' GUARDIAN

'Irreverant observations are thrown down gauntlet-like as [Eclair] rages on to the next gag.' THE TIMES

'Viciously funny and very well written.' DAILY MAIL

'A novel about relationships, parenthood and class that detonates every middle-class chick-lit cliche.' THE TIMES

'A furious plot that never loses its humour, even as events take a dark turn. No happy ending, but an unputdownable take on urban living.' HELLO
