This funny and frank diary records the glamorous – and not so glamorous – life of the daughter of a famous authoress. Bathsheba’s outpourings to her dairy capture the details of her life with all its hopes, dreams and disappointments.

Synopsis

Chips, Beans And Limousines by Leila Rasheed

Bathsheba Clarice de Trop thinks she's a star. Well, her mum is a novelist whose books are all about the adventures of her daughter, and of course the stories must be true. But when Bathsheba is confronted by her father, and discovers that her role in the new Bathsheba film will be played by hot US actress Avocado Dieppe, she has to face reality.

About the Author

Leila Rasheed

Lila Rasheed: "I am half Bangladeshi and half English, was brought up in Libya and have lived in Belgium, Italy and Malaysia. I’ve always written prose, but began writing poetry relatively recently, following encouragement from David Morley and the teachers on the MA in Writing at Warwick. A number of my poems refer to ancient myth, which I see as a ‘neutral space’ because of its remoteness and universality, where questions of nationality, culture and parochial allegiance can be sidestepped in favour of ideas I find more meaningful. A selection of my poems is available in the Heaventree New Poets series. Other things I can do include: make tiramisu, order four bread rolls in Danish, and open a beer bottle with my teeth."

Her first novel was Chips, Beans and Limousines: The Fantastic Diary of Bathsheba Clarice De Trop! Followed by two further tales of Bathsheba, Socks, Shocks and Secrets and Doughnuts, Dreams and Drama Queens and a Young Adult novel called The World Turned Upside Down, which was commissioned by the Stratford Upon Avon Literary Festival.
