At our first Books & Ideas for 2024, and for the very first time on a Saturday evening, wickedly funny Australian writer Kathy Lette talks getting even and exacting revenge.
Kathy Lette is on a mission to prove that older women are not beyond their ‘amuse-by dates’ and can live their best life in their ‘sexties’. Known for Puberty Blues and many laugh-out-loud works, Kathy Lette’s novels have sold millions of copies across the globe.
Over an intimate dinner in The Restaurant at Montalto from 7pm – 10pm, Lette will discuss her newest book The Revenge Club, an irreverent and hilarious take on four women who plot diabolical retribution after being overlooked and left out.
This will be the Kathy’s only Victorian event for this tour. Bottoms up!
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.
When the odds are against you, it's time to get even.
Matilda, Jo, Penny and Cressy are all women at the top of their game; so imagine their surprise when they start to be personally overlooked and professionally pushed aside by less-qualified men.
Only they're not going down without a fight.
Society might think the women have passed their amuse-by dates but the Revenge Club have other plans.
After all, why go to bed angry when you could stay up and plot diabolical retribution? Let the games begin...
