From fat girl to thin, from red hair to mud brown, from London to Toronto, from Polish count to radical husband, from writer of romances to distinguished poet - Joan Foster is utterly confused by her life of multiple identiities. She decides to escape to an Italain hill town to take stock of her life. But first, she must organise her own death...

If you feel safe only with "nine to five" reality, you'll probably not enjoy her books. But if you'd like to lift off, try her - COSMOPOLITAN

Shrewd, funny, intelligent, honest, ironic - SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY
