About the author

Biography of Wickham, Madeleine

Author Madeleine Wickham was born in London on December 12, 1969. She graduated from New College, Oxford and became a financial journalist. She wrote her first novel, The Tennis Party, at the age of 24 while still working as a journalist. She wrote six more novels as Madeleine Wickham, but no longer writes using her real name. In 1999, she decided to write a novel about a girl with a shopping addiction and decided to write under the pseudonym Sophie Kinsella. The novel, The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic, became the first in the successful Shopaholic series about Becky Bloomwood, who loves shopping but is not good with money.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2000-05-15)

Fleur Daxeny is beautiful and sophisticated, with an appetite for comfort beyond her means. She also has a fine wardrobe of black designer dresses that she wears to the funerals of wealthy London women in hope of snaring their grieving husbands. Once captivated by her good looks and charm, these men provide her with money, a home, and an extravagant lifestyle for however long it takes her to stash a bit of cash and move on to the next.

Such is the fate of Richard Favour. The ease with which Fleur moves into his life dazzles him. His late wife had been really rather dull, and everyone in his family seems to find Fleur most refreshing. But just as Richard proposes marriage, the unscrupulous Fleur gets bored and begins reading obituaries again. This is an often witty and deeply biting novel of modern manners and morals. Wickham's (Tennis Party) characters move with the studied grace of Jane Austen's upper class, and her plot is perfect for a made-for-TV movie. Readers will be both touched and entertained. Recommended for all public libraries. DSusan Clifford Braun, Aerospace Corp., El Segundo, CA
