More than 4 weeks availability
From playing panto in Grimsby to hosting the highest rated light entertainment show in the history of British television, this is the story of one extraordinary year in the life of minor TV personality and serial bad dresser, Simon Peters...Simon languishes on the bottom rung of the showbiz celebrity ladder, mired in the tacky world of game shows, daytime TV and home shopping channels. His agent has trouble remembering his name and even his stalker is more famous than he is. He goes to all the wrong parties, sleeps with all the wrong people and to make matters worse, stardom beckons for his most-loathed enemy. And just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, the plug is pulled on his TV show...Like most celebrities, Simon's riddled with insecurities but he's nothing if not resilient, thick-skinned, utterly selfish and a total - if misguided believer - in his own talent. He knows he's got what it takes to get to the middle, the very middle. It's just the getting there that's the problem.
Paul Hendy is 37 years old with a showbiz age of 28. Although he never made it as high as the C-list, you may have seen him hosting such shows as Don't Try This at Home and Wheel of Fortune, which had been running successfully for 20 years until Paul did one series and they cancelled it. He lives in London with his partner Emily and Ernie the cat. This is his first novel.
