Synopsis

Maggie's Tree by Julie Walters

Cissie is a stand-up comedienne and national darling.

Helena is the toast of Broadway.

Maggie is an extremely beautiful but troubled actress - and she's cracking up fast, in fact she's 'out of her tree'.

When Cissie takes Maggie to see Helena in New York, it leads to trouble straight away: Maggie disappears into the freezing February night, no one knows where.

As the search for their friend continues, alarming divisions occur in the lifelong friendships of Cissie, Helena and her stoic husband Luke. And then Cissie disappears too. So, two of the closest of friends are lost separately somewhere in snowbound Manhattan?

Reviews

'a stunningly assured delightful debut' John Harding, THE DAILY MAIL

"Walter's fiction debut is as funny as you'd expect, and twice as frenetic." THE INDEPENDENT

'knock-out stuff, the work of a writer who knows what she's doing.'
Susan Jeffries, THE INDEPENDENT

About the Author

Julie Walters

Julie Walters was nominated for an Oscar for Educating Rita, having made the part her own on stage, and starred in Billy Elliot. She is Mrs Weasley in the Harry Potter films, and co-starred with Helen Mirren in Calendar Girls. Versatile enough to appear both as Mrs Overall in her friend Victoria Wood's 'Acorn Antiques' as well as the sexy Wife of Bath in the BBC's adaptation of The Canterbury Tales, she is 'arguably the nation's best-loved actress' (Sunday Times).
