Dead Rich is a black comedy, a cautionary tale for our times.

Synopsis

Dead Rich by Louise Fennell

The Spenders are Britain's Favourite Family - they are glamorous, rich and very, very famous, everything that their celebrity obsessed culture requires them to be. Their charisma and looks ensure that they are constantly feted, and hounded, by the press. The public adores them. They live what appears to be a charmed and enviable existence.

In the claustrophobic confines of their exquisite houses there is a darker reality. Isolated and hemmed in by the paparazzi and their crazed fans, they are trapped in their fame. Constantly surrounded by an army of long-suffering employees: stylists, PAs, personal trainers, drivers, security teams, hair and make-up artists, managers, agents, publicists – they are never alone but always lonely – with nothing else to do but 'drink and fight and screw' they breakfast on prescription drugs, lunch on vodka and dine on anything illegal they can get their hands on.

Their privileged, high profile lifestyle is shattered when tragedy strikes - tearing apart the fragile fabric of their existence, and sending them spinning out of control.

Reviews

"Staggeringly funny and sharp and black - I couldn't put it down." JOANNA LUMLEY

"Witty, racy and hilariously funny, Dead Rich is a gripping satire on the modern culture of celebrity. Fennell is a master of her world." SANTA MONTEFIORE

"Pacy, funny, glamorous and witty." TATLER

"Dead Rich is dead funny and dead interesting with drop-dead gorgeous people. Loved it!"
JOAN COLLINS

About the Author

Louise Fennell

Louise Fennell was first introduced to the gilded gutter life of the rich and famous when, aged seventeen, she began working for the iconic dress designer Thea Porter in 70s Soho. In those years she travelled extensively from the Colony Room Club in Dean Street to Paris, New York and Los Angeles, dressing the stars of stage, screen and rock and roll. After a stint as a photographer's agent she returned to her first love: 'zipping divas into dresses', and started her own fashion business in the 90s, which she enjoyably continues to do today. Louise is married to the designer Theo Fennell and they have two daughters.
