Finally in a new edition. Sheila Power is a camp comedy of manners that turns into a thriller, an investigation into culture high and low, an entertainment with erotic passages. You could even call it a queer theory text. I’ve been told it’s like Dawn Powell, Absolutely Fabulous and Myra Breckenridge …
In This Novel
Sheila Power has been described as “A rattling good read that defies pigeon holing into any one genre. Our heroine is Sheila Power, a very rich film producer and all-round prominent social identity, who is about to start work on what will be the crowning achievement of her spectacular career. The stylised satire and mystery are only part of the plot. Sheila’s also undergoing past-life therapy. Sheila Power is a block-buster of a novel, a satirical thriller filled with lashings of racy sex between moments of transcendental spirituality and shopping”. First published in 1997, this novel was also noted as being “both a continuation of and a break with Baranay’s writings”. The new ebook and Local Time Publishing editions come with the author’s Afterwords.
