the Liberace character was really well done-instantly recognised from TV footage I have seen over the year

When I first flip through the pages, I assumed this one fell into chick-lit category. Apparently its not! I was surprise (in a good way, of course)with the very good values as well as precious lessons to note that came with this heartbreaking story. I must confess ; I cried when Sel died!
(sorry for the spoiler!haha)

Not my favourite Laurie Graham novel, but I enjoyed it all the same. This is the showbiz story of a Liberace type character, as told by the brother who has lived in his shadow for most of this life. Looks at both showbusiness and the complications of family relationships.

My first by this author. I liked the naivety of the narrator of the story which meant the reader could read between the lines about what was really going ton. Plenty of comedy although the overall story is quite sad. Enjoyable.

Showbiz story taken straight from Liberace written from the point of view of the less talented brother. Entertaining but a bit lightweight

Really ill over Christmas so this was just the right level and subject matter not too heavy until the very end and quite amusing in parts.

Maybe it is because I am a oerformer that I loved this book. I laughed. I got frustrated. I cried. I enjoyed the ride.

Superb. Laurie Graham at her best. She's so east to read and I love her diverse ideas around which to write a story.
