Told with Kathy Lette's razor-sharp wit, this is a funny, quirky and tender story of a mother's love for her son - and of a love affair that has no chance of running smoothly.
Kathy Lette first achieved succ s de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film. She has written eleven more international bestsellers including Mad Cows, How to Kill Your Husband and Other Handy Household Hints (recently staged by the Victorian Opera, Australia), and To Love, Honour and Betray. Her novels have been published in fourteen languages around the world. Kathy appears regularly as a guest on the BBC and Sky News. She is also an ambassador for Women and Children First, Plan International and the White Ribbon Alliance. Kathy lives in London with her husband and two children.
"The Boy Who Fell to Earth is an engaging novel about the love
between a mother and son....as good as anything Lette has written."
* Sunday Times *
"Kathy Lette can make even the toughest subjects funny. Romance and the more difficult shores of parenthood meld easily in this tender portrait of a deeply connected mother and son. Don't miss out on Lette's best book to date." * The Lady *
"A rather searing read...While this is a departure for Lette, best known for pun-tastic romantic comedies, she's managed to weld all this darkness to her usual glittering style with surprising success." -- Wendy Holden * Daily Mail *
