About the Author
Author Madeleine Wickham was born in London on December 12, 1969. She graduated from New College, Oxford and became a financial journalist. She wrote her first novel, The Tennis Party, at the age of 24 while still working as a journalist. She wrote six more novels as Madeleine Wickham, but no longer writes using her real name. In 1999, she decided to write a novel about a girl with a shopping addiction and decided to write under the pseudonym Sophie Kinsella. The novel, The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic, became the first in the successful Shopaholic series about Becky Bloomwood, who loves shopping but is not good with money.
From Our Editors
The Tennis Party is a penetrating, accomplished and cutthroat comedy of manners and morals. A tennis tournament is the excuse for a weekend at the luxurious estate of Patrick and Caroline. But when Ella, the ex-wife of one of the husbands, arrives looking sleek and sexy, the veneer of friendship crackles into pettiness, rows and revelations. Discover a world in which nice people gain a new understanding of themselves and others while nasty types get what they deserve in this brilliantly entertaining novel.
