Laurie Graham never fails to tell her story with sharp observations and a quick wit. Buzz Wexler is about to be unexpectedly sidelined in her career but maybe things that seem terrible in the beginning can bring a surprisingly much brighter future. A great story of unexpected friendships.
Buzz Wexler is an old hand at the music PR business: Angry Belgians,
Cheesy Boyz and Ear Waxx were all her babies. And for a woman who was
forty last birthday she certainly keeps up the pace. But that's about
Now some twenty year old has been given Wasabi Gymslip, the Japanese group predicted to go stellar and Buzz is being sidelined into something called World Music. It'll be a blast, her boss assures her. The Gorni Grannies may not be the tantrum-throwing celebs Buzz is used to, but they present other challenges.
How to stop Lubka straining yogurt through M&S knee highs; how to persuade Mara that Tail Waggers' Gravy Bones aren't intended for human consumption. Fuelled by copious shots of home-brewed plum raika, Buzz and Lubka address life's disappointments until the world tilts and the future beckons. This novel explores the comic possibilities of culture clash and the unexpected friendship of two women whose lives are poles apart.
Laurie Graham is a brilliant satirist who is also warm and life affirming.
