The Square by Rosie Millard
  

Lovereading view...

Full of controversy, gossip, affairs and drama, this book is a fantastic summer read. The Square is a contemporary, comic satire, set in the bourgeois heartland of London, featuring a community of great privilege where the only escape route is sex - and minor celebrity.

Synopsis

The Square by Rosie Millard

Jane has the ideal life: loving husband, beautiful house and delightful son. Her fashionable dinner parties are perfect - and so are her secret assignations with her neighbour's husband, Jay. From Tracey and her 'New Money' lottery winnings to eccentric artist Philip and his pornographic portraits, the residents of North London's most privileged enclave The Square are a very satisfied bunch.To raise money for communal fencing, the Residents' Association decides to hold a Talent Show, produced by Jane and hosted by TV celebrity Alan Makin. But when the show lurches into public disarray, reputations are shattered and everyone has to learn to live with a far less glossy reality than before.
