Linda never expected anything else. It's the way life is. The grammar school girls get careers; the comp girls get two-bit college courses and low wage jobs. But when model agent Rafe brings his disposable razors to Linda's till, he recognises the raw talent that could transform both their careers. Almost overnight Linda becomes Crystalline, a supermodel catapulted on to the international stage.
The bittersweet story of a young checkout girl's rise to fame, Supermarket Supermodel is prize-winning playwright Jim Cartwright's first foray into novel-writing.

"Cartwright's strength, as in his plays, is his dialogue and his creation of character." (The Times)
"Equally touching and funny." (Guardian)
This story really started with promise but then descended into the mediocre. Just when you thought it might be going somewhere it stopped and started down another dead end. It would seem the author started with a good idea, but had forgotten what it was by the third chapter. Totally putdownable.
