Fast-paced, lighthearted, sharp and fun, this book, seemingly based on the Profumo Affair of 1963, looks behind the scenes at how to become a 1960's WAG. A chance encounter with a handbag leads Jane 'Janey' James through her journey to become one of society's upper class. A must read for anyone interested in becoming a lady of leisure!
