A Novel of Some Extremes
A novel by

A sweeping vista of the swinging sixties and seventies is the backdrop to this highly entertaining and sometimes startling tale of Reginald Forbes - aka Regina - a gay and increasingly fey interior designer. As his phenomenal success blossoms, so does his selfishness and greed for the limelight. The trail of destruction he leaves in his ruthless wake is illustrated by his alarming "no holds barred" put- downs and even more outrageous behaviour.

Such conduct is vigorously aided and abetted by host of colourful characters and a host of extravagant settings ranging from London to New York, Texas, Key West, the French Riviera and the exotic Far East abound.

Headed by Regina other members of the dazzling cast include the eccentric Elvira, Duchess of Lewes and the over-the-top dashing James Young, a baronet known for more than just his impressive lineage. A rival luminary to Regina is Amanda Adamson, actress supreme along with her paramour, Texas billionaire, Clark Gable lookalike Bindi Carter. Nor must one ever be allowed to forget the pampered Petrina!

"RA"- also Regina's lover - is the narrator who suffers endlessly at the hand of Regina's acrid wit, but his own naivety is explored with a sympathetic touch which leaves the reader rooting for him and intrigued as to what will happen next.

Regina - the book - provides a sharp, witty insight into the frailties of human relationships along with a devastating look behind the scenes of the brittle, bitchy world of interior design. Be prepared for shocks, tears and laughter; a perfect threesome!
