Notă biografică

Louise Levene is the author of A Vision of Loveliness, a BBC Book at Bedtime, which was also longlisted for the Desmond Elliott first novel prize, and Ghastly Business. She has been the dance critic of the Sunday Telegraph since 1998 but has also been an advertising copywriter, a window dresser, a radio presenter, an office cleaner, a crossword editor, a university tutor, a college professor and a saleslady. She lives in London with her husband and their two children.


Fizzes with cracking one-liners, acute observations and acidic social satire. It's funny, boisterous and sharp ... An acerbic and gloriously evocative portrait of Seventies girlhood . Pitch-perfect
Simultaneously funny - wryly and sometimes bleakly so - and painful to read. Levene perfectly captures the brutality of adolescence
An acutely observed and witty portrayal of the school exploits and growing pains of a 1970s teenager . Knowing and funny, this is St Trinian's for grown-ups *****
A clever and extremely entertaining study of teenage claustrophobia
Reflective, bittersweet and frequently funny
Levene's sharply observed comedy mixes affectionate satire of the stylistic oddities of the time with an invigorating sparkle of real dislike for the petty tyrannies of parental and pedagogical authority
