A Clockwork Orange and RuPaul's Drag Race meet Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in this fabulous dystopian fable about fashion, family and feckless billionaires. Simone is one of the Glitterati, the elite living lives of luxury and leisure. Slave to the ever-changing tides - and brutal judgements - of fashion, he is immaculate. To be anything else is to be unfashionable, and no one wants to be unfashionable, or even worse, ugly... When Simone accidentally starts a new fashion with a nosebleed at a party, another Glitterati takes the credit. Soon their rivalry threatens to raze their opulent utopia to the ground, as no one knows how to be vicious like the beautiful ones. Enter a world of the most fantastic costumes, grand palaces in the sky, the grandest parties known to mankind and the unbreakable rules of how to eat ice cream. A fabulous dystopian fable about fashion, family and the feckless billionaire class.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A fabulously twisted journey of self discovery, but inside the visual extravaganza there beats a dark, human heart - Glitterati is a many-hued delight." - Aliya Whiteley, award-winning author of The Beauty and The Loosening Skin

"Glitterati is a strange, bright wonder of a book that begins as a playful satirization of the world of couture and ends as a finely-cut lens into the habits of the modern world."-Cassandra Khaw, author of Nothing But Blackened Teeth

"Fabulous! A sensory powder keg of a book that bursts with wit, poise and oh-so cutting-edge style. Literary but feather-light, this is the most elegant and charming thing you'll read all year. It had me grinning from ear to ear the whole way through." - Josh Winning, author of The Shadow Glass

"Glitterati promises to be your new obsession... a world of fashion, backstabbing, baubles, and ice cream, in which compulsive, light-as-air storytelling hints and teases at the seriously dark dystopia behind it all. I absolutely loved this book." - Ally Wilkes, author of All the White Spaces

"A scintillating dive into Langmead's kaleidoscopic imagination." - Stark Holborn, author of Ten Low

"High fashion meets dark satire in this hilarious dystopia of manners. As heart-warming as it is razor-sharp. I laughed so hard I spat out my Dom Perignon - read it before everyone else does!'' - J. L Worrad, author of Pennyblade

“Glitterati Review”

I am not one for fashion, in general. My style has stayed consistent for roughly the last twenty years - band shirts when I’m not at work, floral print shirts when I am. Then there’s my capital crime - jeans with... More
