Oh Dear Silvia
by Dawn French

Goodreads synopsis:
Who is in Coma Suite Number 5?

A matchless lover? A supreme egotist? A selfless martyr? A bad mother? A cherished sister? A selfish wife?

All of these. For this is Silvia Shute who has always done exactly what she wants. Until now, when her life suddenly, shockingly stops.

Her past holds a dark and terrible secret, and now that she is unconscious in a hospital bed, her constant stream of visitors are set to uncover the mystery of her broken life. And she must lie there, victim of the beloveds, the borings, the babblings and the plain bonkers.

Like it or not, the truth is about to pay Silvia a visit. Again, and again and again...

I've always really admired Dawn French - she's an incredibly talented and funny woman. So when she started writing and publishing fiction, I was immediately interested. Her first novel, A Tiny Bit Marvellous, is one that I still have to read, though. I picked it up in hardback last year, and I read a couple of chapters - which were great - but ended up reading other books for the blog instead.
I first found out about this two or so months ago, and it sounds great - even better than her previous novel. So despite having not yet read A Tiny Bit Marvellous, I have added it to my Christmas list.
The premise of the book, and the synopsis show a lot of potential, so I'm really hoping that the actual book will fulfill this.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

I have discovered a new author. I have not read anything by Dawn French, and it sounds like she is a favorite of yours. I will have to look out for this one and others by her.
Thanks for hosting.

I'm really glad that this has caused some interenet! I love Dawn, and can't wait to get stuck into this on Christmas day (maybe, but I'm also getting many other exciting books! :D)

Huh. I don't normally do "grown-up" lit, but that sounds... pretty good, actually.
