The Rise and Fall of a Domestic Diva by Sarah May

The Rise and Fall of a Domestic Diva by Sarah May

The queen of the black-hearted soap opera is back!

Welcome to the upwardly mobile Prendergast Road…

On Prendergast Road, deep in Nappy Valley, among olive trees in terracotta, lower fuel emissions, Lithuanian prostitutes, teenage drug dealers, stalkers and soaring house prices, five desperate women wait…

The progeny of the IVF generation is ready to start school and only one of them is destined to get a place in Nappy Valley’s most oversubscribed cradle of learning. How far will these women go to get that place?

Follow Kate Hunter into the depths of her impeccably honed life, as she struggles to maintain the facade of perfection. When exactly did life become a life class? Is happiness overrated? Is it just possible that beneath the flawless sheen of her friends’ and neighbours’ amazingly trouble-free lives, beneath the freshly-ironed shirts and home-grown veg, lie the same half-truths, the same uncertainties and the same desperation to keep up with the Joneses…?

Sarah May is an intimate observer of society (AKA curtain-twitcher of the highest order) and her novel is an hilariously dark-hearted soap opera of our everyday lives. In a society that always strives to be more organic, less carbon-polluting, more virtuous than any other, ‘The Rise and Fall of the Domestic Diva’ is a breath of fresh air (imported from the mountains of Nepal and filtered organically for purity, of course. A snip at only GBP6.99.).
