A black comedy about the making of a propaganda film in World War II.
After a brief career in medicine, and an even briefer one in stand-up, Lissa Evans became a comedy producer, first in radio and then in television. She co-created Room 101 with Nick Hancock, produced Father Ted and co-produced and directed The Kumars at Number 42. She lives in north London.
"[Lissa Evans] displays a fine eye for detail and for the absurdities involved in filming. She also brilliantly evokes the disruption and dangers of wartime London. This funny, heart-warming and beautifully crafted novel is a must-read" * Daily Mail * "Beautifully written, minutely observed and researched, evocative and very funny tale" -- Michele Hanson * Guardian * "Comic, poignant and altogether delightful, raised spirits are guaranteed" * Easy Living * "This is a comic novel, but far warmer in tone and broader in scope than that label would suggest...Gloriously observed...Hilliard is a wonderful creation - and Evans's recreated propaganda scripts are a total joy. Delicious" * The Times * "Pitch-perfect in tone and populated by some unforgettable characters, Lissa Evans's blackly comic new novel is a delight" * The Gloss Magazine *
