Covergirl: Confessions of a Flawed Hedonist (Paperback)

Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

Maura Moynihan's first novel, Covergirl, blends reality and fiction in a brilliant and exciting roman a clef that draws richly from the author's own adventures as a Warhol Girl and from her many years of working with Tibetan refugees in Asia.



Meet Veronica Ferris, the daughter of an imperious socialite and a kindly but absent diplomat. Fresh out of college, Veronica lands in Manhattan in pursuit of romance, disco, and rock 'n' roll-an arrival that threatens to usurp her mother's ambitious assault on New York high society. Maintaining her "double life" as a talented partygoer and a bearer of the esteemed Ferris family name is a high-wire act that requires far more cunning and restraint than young Veronica initially realizes. With its unforgettable heroine and wry, highly entertaining voice, Covergirl is at once a poignant coming-of-age tale, a delightful social satire, and a vibrant modern-day odyssey.
