Synopsis

Gallery Girl by 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.

Reviews

'Wendy Holden is slyly funny on the foibles of auctioneers, collectors and arrivisties, and absurdly inventive when it comes to capturing the decadent trappings of the art party scene'
Marie Claire

'This is an author guaranteed to lift your spirits'
