Cause Celeb - the critically acclaimed debut novel from a writer with a bou ndless grasp of the existential and the uproarious - has just landed in Ame rica. Deftly skewering the world of celebrity fundraising, Fielding has cre ated an alternately comic and moving satire that straddles the glitter of m edia London and the horrors of an African refugee crisis. Rosie Richardson, a twenty-something literary puffette, is in a totally non -functional relationship with an unevolved but irresistible adult male - a hotshot TV presenter who plunges her into the glitzy, bitchy, inane lifesty le of London's It people. Disillusioned with the celebrity world, Rosie esc apes to run a refugee camp in the African jungle. When famine strikes and a massive refugee influx heads for the camp, governments and agencies drag their heels. Bringing her former media savvy to the fore, realizing the only way to get food out fast is to bring celebrities first, Rosie turns to the life and man she fled to organize a star-studded emergency appeal from famine-rack.
