Divoon Daddy

(2011)
A novel by

 
"You can choose your friends but you sho' can't choose your family!" Harper Lee's immortal quote from To Kill a Mockingbird is happily changed to "You can choose your friends but I couldn't have chosen a better family," by tiny heroine Madeleine (Maddy) Marie Jensen when referring to her 'Divoon Daddy', a feeling heartily endorsed by Maddy's twelve year-old fiance, Harry, and an endearment which leads the two through a tale of riotous fun, mystery, and mayhem.
Thus follows a series of unprecedented happenings, taking the two and their subsequent offspring, on an unparalleled rollercoaster ride from London's glamorous Belgravia and Chelsea to a not so Gay Paree, and on to the so-called tranquillity of Cape Town and the exotic - but sinister - Caribbean.
Along the way, they encounter a plethora of " characters: Maddy's mother, the outrageous ex-stripper, Marie "Desiree" Jensen, a widow of unfathomable wealth (her passion for pink and parties causing apoplexy amongst her stuffy, grandiose neighbours); Marie's constant companion from the 'good old days', the dipso Dolores Mayo, and her on-off lover Georgio "Jig-a-Jig" Demarco; the fey but ruthless interior designer, Timothy Sanders-Snype; the dark and devious Tembo, whose skills with his maracas are legendary; and the double-dealing Michael Cole. All ensure that there is never a dull moment in Robin Anderson's latest adventure romp. You have been warned - nobody is quite what they seem!
