Rose has just emerged from a disastrous relationship, and she’s not happy. Something’s gotta give.
This book is the story of what happens when she signs up to earn five hundred karma points by doing good deeds – with the ultimate goal of qualifying for reincarnation as a cat. Rose’s quest for personal transformation isn’t easy.
Luckily, she’s supported by a cast of fictional assistants, including the sultry Madame Sputnik, the inscrutable Guru Fred (from Wagga) and Father O’Flaherty, the incumbent priest at St Agnes of Colostemy. Selflessly befriending little kids, old people and bile bears. Rose swishes through her year of good deeds with all the panache of a rhinoceros at a tea party, and the genuine ethics of an Enron executive.
“For years, I have been searching for someone to fill the shoes of humourists like Jean Kerr (Please Don’t Eat the Daisies and Erma Bombeck (If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits?). For the first time, I think I have found an author who could come close to doing that. With the episodic nature of the chapters, they could be treated even as individual short stories, linked with a common theme. This is the stuff that best-selling, well-loved humour columnists are made of.” (Katherine E.Wall, Online Book Club Reviewer)
