Cause Celeb - the critically acclaimed debut novel from a writer with a boundless grasp of the existential and the uproarious - has just landed in America. Deftly skewering the world of celebrity fundraising, Fielding has created an alternately comic and moving satire that straddles the glitter of media 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 lifestyle of London's It people. Disillusioned with the celebrity world, Rosie escapes 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-racked Africa. Seamlessly bridging cataclysm and farce through the insights of a modern-day everywoman, Cause Celeb crackles with insight into fame, passion, and altruism in our time.

    " I had bought this book a long time ago but never had gotten into it. By the time I got around to attempting it I was very much interested in the general plot, international aid & African refugees. It was light and not too serious but definitely got a good message out. "

    " I think there is a reason why this was unpublished in the U.S... this really is a boring book. "

    " I like chick lit, but it's not my favorite genre. It's what I read for fun I guess. This is the first book I have read from Helen Fielding and I liked Cause Celeb. I gave it only two stars because Rosie wasn't very good main character and there were a couple of things that annoyed me. But I laughed a little and the story was much better than I expected. "

    " It's an interesting and odd mix of hilarity and horror. "
