PSY­CHOS Babe Walker, Si­mon & Schus­ter $22.99

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - BOOKS -

If your idea of a good night’s view­ing in­volves The Face, Fash­ion Po­lice or any of the Real House­wives

shows, Psy­chos is most def­i­nitely up your street.

Em­brac­ing all that is flashy and trashy about life in Los Angeles, this is the se­quel to Babe Walker’s orig­i­nal novel, White Girl Prob­lems.

Fresh out of re­hab af­ter con­quer­ing her al­leged shop­ping ad­dic­tion, Walker is once again ready to make (or should that be fake) it in Hol­ly­wood. Her mis­sion is to be “a Babe with goals and as­pi­ra­tions”.

But Babe’s life soon turns into some­thing out of a James Bond movie in­volv­ing sab­o­tage, rob­bery and dar­ing he­li­copter res­cues. Com­plete non­sense but, hey, if it’s good enough for Ian Flem­ing, there’s no rea­son it shouldn’t work for Babe Walker.
