Kathy Lette is a celebrated and outspoken comic writer who has an
inimitable take on serious current issues. She is the author of
fifteen bestselling novels including Puberty Blues which was made
into a major film and a TV miniseries, Mad Cows which was also made
into a film, starring Joanna Lumley, and How to Kill Your Husband
(and other handy household hints), which was staged by the
Victorian Opera. She pioneered smart, funny, feminist fiction and
has been published in seventeen languages.
Kathy is an autodidact (clearly it's a word she taught herself) but has honorary doctorates from Southampton and Wollongong universities, and a Senior Honorary Fellowship from Regent's University London.
She is an ambassador for Plan International and the National Autistic Society UK. Kathy lives in Sydney and London, and can often be found at the Savoy Hotel drinking a cocktail named after her. She cites her career highlights as once teaching Stephen Fry a word and Salman Rushdie the limbo, and scripting Julian Assange's cameo in the 500th episode of The Simpsons.
