Beautiful People


Item #:6632

  • Beautiful People

    Previously published in the US as Nasty

    Simon Doonan’s childhood was a curious mix of small town boredom and bright light city dreams. Growing up in a working class area of Reading with the mad-cap Doonan clan – Mother Betty, Father Terry, sister Shelagh aka Slag, blind Aunt Phyllis, grandmother Narg and Grandfather DC - he yearned to get out and find the Beautiful People whom he imagined lived fabulous lives of glitz and glamour.

    This is the charming and funny story of how Simon eventually finds a way out and escapes to London with best friend Biddie Biddlecombe. Along the way they stumble upon punks, drunks, ladies of the night, the long arm of the law and all sorts of camps, vamps and outrageous scamps.

    But does he ever find the Beautiful People? Or are they the ones he left behind?
