WHEN THE FAT LADY THINS – Novel by Karen Anstee
Olivia is hugely talented singer, yet she has ended up consigned to working
as an also-ran soloist for horrendous amateur choral societies. Meanwhile,
her frenemy, the svelte and gorgeous Calliope, is a mega-successful
international opera star, despite her limited ability. Bound together by a
traumatic past, they find their friendship tested to its limits by success and a
handsome Italian tenor.
This sometimes tear-jerking, often humorous tale of friendship, love, lust and
betrayal reveals the romance and heartbreak that lies behind the scenes at
London’s glamorous opera houses.
