Synopsis

'Enormously entertaining and lovable'
Nick Hornby, New York Times

'Nonjudgmental, original and very funny; the book is warm and generous too. I loved it'
India Knight, Sunday Times STYLE

** Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley is to adapt for A24 - a TV show starring Nicole Kidman and Elle & Dakota Fanning **

Margo Millet's got money troubles. As the child of a Hooter's waitress and an ex-Pro-Wrestler, she's always known she'd have to make it on her own. When she finds herself pregnant by her college professor - who is very keen not to be involved - she realizes she will need cash fast.

At twenty, alone with a baby, what Margo lacks in options she makes up for in ingenuity, and soon she has a plan: she'll start an OnlyFans as an experiment, producing content and writing storylines unlike anything else out there. Help arrives in the form of her live-action role-playing flatmate Suzie, and her father, Jinx - a recovering addict and veteran of the wrestling world, who has experience of making an audience fall in love.

Before she knows it, Margo is an online phenomenon. Could this be the answer to all of Margo's problems, or does internet fame come with too high a price?

'An expansive, offbeat, gorgeous exploration of resilience, forgiveness and multi-generational parenthood'
Pandora Sykes

'A hilarious novel about making the most of what you've got.'
Emma Straub, author of All Adults Here
