What other readers are saying about this title:
Author Isobel Latimer has always taken pride in her literary work. Unfortunately, esteemed literary prizes don’t necessarily equate to blockbuster sales by the public -- or many sales at all, in fact. To rescue her household from bankruptcy after her ailing husband becomes obsessed with installing a swimming pool, Isobel swallows her pride and writes a sensational novel under a pseudonym and, with the help of her agent, some new clothes and a wig, adopts a completely new persona, Zelda Vere. With the success of her new book and personality, Isobel is tempted to become Zelda, who is far more sophisticated and exciting than dowdy old Isobel.
First, this is a terrible book. It’s impossible to even like Isobel, and you can see the train wreck coming from a mile away. The scenes in which Isobel and her agent take turns "playing" Zelda, in particular on the television program, are completely unbelievable. The ending boggles the mind.
