Gallery Girl by Wendy Holden

Good Housekeeping's view...

The very funny Wendy Holden sets her new novel in the world of contemporary art and artists. With all the introspection and drama you would expect from 'artistic types' we are introduced to a wonderful array of characters whose lives intertwine in this hilarious, romantic read.

September 2010 Good Housekeeping selection.

Blockbusting author Wendy Holden does it again with Gallery Girl – a fabulously frothy tale of a woman drawn into the glamorous, sex-fuelled world of contemporary art.

If you like Wendy Holden you might also like to read books by Jane Costello, Mhairi McFarlane and Allison Pearson.

What is Good Housekeeping


Gallery Girl by Wendy Holden

A hilarious tale from Sunday Times Number 1 bestselling author Wendy Holden. Zeb's the darling of Brit Art; the rock n' roll bad boy artist whose works go for bazillions. But can he keep his end up -- in every sense -- now that his powerful female patron is losing interest? Beth loves art and the traditional gallery she works in and loves her boyfriend, doctor David. But the hospital hours he keeps are putting a strain on the relationship. Marie's pop-star husband was big in the Nineties; he's relaunching his boy band with a vengeance. But where does this leave Marie and her dreams of being a painter? Ben's a brilliant portrait artist but no-one wants his stuff. Why have a picture that actually looks like you when you could have a gold-sprayed prosthetic limb? Disillusioned Ben's reduced to living in the country and holding adult education life classes. But what happened to his life?Then Beth finds herself catapulted into the crazed world of contemporary art. Marie walks into Ben's life class. And the picture changes completely.
