All Sauce For The Gander
Corgi, London, 1969
The blurb on the back:
She was tall ... smoothed-skinned ... very beautiful. She was Astra Page, pop-singer, famous and adored by the fans who would tear each other apart just to get a look at her.
I tried - God knows, I tried - but it's unreadable. It's all small-town passion and tedium and I got nowhere with it. If anyone else has read this book and wants to tell me all about it, I'm happy to hear, but for now I'll stay with the rather nice period cover.
Ms Maynard was also the author of This Is My Street, Weep Not, My Wanton, The Bawdy Wind and Flesh and Blood.
