Federica Brunini – The Blonde Formula – €12

Translated by Becky d’Ugo

 Frustrated gossip journalist Camilla Casteldiani is on the brink of her thirties, and is not having an easy time. With her love life in ruins and her career prospects dreary, she tries to bury herself in her work on a biography about her idol Audrey Hepburn, whose image she also tries to emulate in both her choice of hair colour as well as her monochromatic wardrobe.  But what happens when her life is suddenly taken over by the colourful Marilyn Monroe, who assaults Camilla with a volley of mostly unasked for advice on love, femininity, beauty, self-esteem and how to become irresistibly  sexy? In between emails from the enigmatic Mr. G and encounters with a mysterious stranger who saves her from one embarrassing situation after another, will Camilla ever manage to bring out the Marilyn in her?
