Published by Allen & Unwin
ABOUT THE BOOK:
This novel is the story of a lie. But it is also a story of laughter and tears, of life itself.

When her chronically unemployed husband runs off to start a crocodile farm in Kenya with his mistress, Josephine Cortes is left in an unhappy state of affairs. The mother of two is forced to make ends meet on her meagre salary as a medieval history scholar.

Meanwhile, Josephine's charismatic sister Iris seems to have it all - a wealthy husband, gorgeous looks, and a tres chic Paris address-but secretly she dreams of bringing meaning back into her life.

And then a dinner party changes the sisters' destinies.

Iris is seated next to a famous book publisher to whom she spins a tale of the 12th century romance she's writing. When Iris charms him into offering her a lucrative deal for her book, she offers her sister a deal of her own: Josephine will write the novel and pocket all the proceeds, but the book will be published under Iris's name.

All is well - until the book becomes the literary sensation of the season...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Katherine Pancol moved from Casablanca to France when she was five. She studied literature and initially became a French and Latin teacher, before turning to journalism. While working for Paris-Match and Cosmopolitan, she is noticed by an intuitive publisher who encourages her to begin writing.

Her novel The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles has been a huge success in France and the rest of Europe where it has sold over 2.5 million copies. The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles has been translated into thirty-one languages. Katherine Pancol lives in Paris, France and updates her blog every week on her website http://www.katherine-pancol.com.
