A nuanced and moving portrait of ambition, manipulation, and the emotional havoc created by those unable to escape the past, set against the heady, soon-to-be-lost glamour of early 1960s showbiz
Delia, the heroine of V.B. Grey's gripping and subtle novel is a fabulous study in ambivalence, guilt and yearning, and her portrait of Sixties London ... is terrific'
I loved this elegant and enthralling novel, with its clever shades of All About Eve and A Star is Born. Beneath the surface glamour of early-Sixties showbiz, the devastating personal histories of Delia, Lily and Frank continue to haunt and torment them. Who, if any, will triumph? A spellbinding read
Tell Me How It Ends is a gorgeously written novel which evokes the atmosphere and glamour of old Hollywood while including utterly modern themes. Best enjoyed with a dry martini and some jazz on the (vinyl) record player
