Famous follows one year in the life of 33-year-old Samantha True a self-confessed SPG (Single Professional Girl) living in the heart of Auckland City. She works as a 'suit' for one of the city's leading advertising agencies and is definitely happy with her life exactly the way it is - no emotional ties no relationship hang-ups and plenty of money clothes and good parties. That is until a single and highly enjoyable one-night stand goes horribly pear-shaped when she accidentally bonks someone famous. The bonking wasn't accidental - it was the guy being famous that was the big mistake. And about as famous as it gets: the happily married father-of-two All Black captain no less. Suddenly Sam is notorious and after two months of media mayhem and harassment she makes a break for the depths of rural New Zealand - but what she expected to be cosy little rural retreat turns out to be an insect-infested hunting cabin and the quaint locals regard her with deep suspicion.
With her characteristic quirky humour which has readers chortling to themselves when they're not laughing out loud once again Kate Langdon captures with style and panache the twisted humour of life in the noughties.
