Synopsis

Winner of the Grand Prix 2009 de la Critique Bande Dessinee.



Tamara Drewe has transformed herself. Plastic surgery, a different wardrobe, a smouldering look, have given her confidence and a new and thrilling power to attract, which she uses recklessly. Often just for the fun of it.



People are drawn to Tamara Drewe, male and female. In the remote village where her late mother lived Tamara arrives to clear up the house. Here she becomes an object of lust, of envy, the focus of unrequited love, a seductress. To the village teenagers she is 'plastic-fantastic', a role model. Ultimately, when her hot and indiscriminate glances lead to tragedy, she is seen as a man-eater, a heartless home-wrecker, a slut.



First appearing as a serial in the Guardian, in book form Tamara Drewe has been enlarged, embellished and lovingly improved by the author.

Customer Reviews

Really lovely quality paper and printing. Very much enjoyed reading this especially as something as bit 'lighter' after reading some heavy-duty novels recently. Beautifully drawn. Posy Simmonds knows when it's best to let the illustrations do the talking. Some of the best bits of story telling are the pages with no text. Would recommend.
