Funny Girl by Nick Hornby

"Being at the top of your ca­reer was like being at the top of a Fer­ris wheel: you knew that you had to keep mov­ing, and you knew which way you were going."

This delightful tale from Mr Hornby sees former beauty pageant contestant, Barbara from Blackpool, discover a successful sitcom career in the 1960s.
It is a snappy and entertaining read, framed in a non-fiction style, complete with photography of actual events that are incorporated into the story to give a sense of the period.
I don't want to spoil this one for you. 

5 out of 5 bathing beauties make it big.
