Immensely likeable, unsuccessful, broke actress meets a thoroughly disreputable, wealthy rogue. Setting the scene and getting to know them is a quiet read where you gradually become involved and then suddenly the plot takes off and the book changes gear. Very impressive.Comparison: Nick Hornby, Douglas Coupland, Toby Litt.
