Author of the celebrated and hilarious THE DUD AVOCADO, the classic novel about a young American ingenue in Paris, Elaine Dundy was born in New York in the 1930s. Her first years were spent in an apartment on Park Avenue until the stock market crash wiped out most of the family's money. She went to university in the south where, among other studies, she worked hard at losing her virginity. Deciding the stage was her true home, Elaine Dundy headed first to Paris and then to London, where she met and married the famous theatre critic Kenneth Tynan. Though their union was intoxicating, it was far from easy and the successful publication in 1958 of her novel finished off the marriage. But it was the opening of a new world of writers for Elaine Dundy, including friendships with Tennessee Williams, Hemingway and Gore Vidal. Extremely funny and extraordinarily honest this wonderfully remembered story of growing up in America is as much a tonic as life itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Touching, fascinating, endlessly entertaining * Jilly Cooper, Books of the Year, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
An absoute treat, by turns jaunty, pleasingly self-knowing and unexpectedly moving * India Knight, SUNDAY TIMES *
Compelling from the first page to the last * Geoffrey Wansell, Books of the Year, DAILY MAIL *
For God's sake, read this book. Its author didn't just live life - she attacked it. * MODERN WOMAN *
