Synopsis

Cause Celeb is the debut novel from Helen Fielding, the bestselling author of Bridget Jones’s Diary.

Disillusioned by her glitzy life in London and her desirable but cruel TV-presenter boyfriend, Rosie Richardson chucks it all in and spends four years running a refugee camp in Africa. Then famine strikes in a nearby province and an influx of starving refugees threatens to overwhelm the camp. Frustrated by the cautious response of the aid agencies, Rosie decides on a drastic short-term solution. She returns to London, breaks back into the celebrity circuit and brings the celebs out to Africa for a star-studded TV emergency appeal.

A champion first novel . . . what makes it such a pleasure to read is its variety of tone: flip, flirtatious, serious, mocking and moving . . . get hold of a copy of this book.

Observer

A terrific achievement . . . The camp scenes are as moving and funny as the original M*A*S*H; she sends up the self-important “mediacracy” with an insider’s wit, and it’s written at a romping pace with a cliff-hanger finish.

Cosmopolitan

Sharp, gutsy and refreshing.
