Disillusioned by her glitzy life in London, Rosie Richardson chucks it all and ends up running a refuge camp in Africa. When famine strikes a nearby province and an influx of refugees threatens to overwhelm the camp, Rosie, frustrated by the cautious response of aid agencies; decides on a drastic short-term solution. She returns to London, breaks back into the celebrity circuit, and brings the celebs out to Africa for a star-studded TV emergency appeal. Hilarious and humane, "Cause celeb" is a literary satire, full of insights into fame, passion, and altruism in our times.
