Description

Maya Lowe is Britain's most famous film star, an incredibly alluring actress. Her story is told by Steve, a childhood friend who has watched her rise to stardom and always been in love with her. His privileged position as her confidant makes him the envy of millions. He gets entangled in her celebrity lifestyle first when she decides she has had enough of acting and then when she calls him in distress after her TV presenter husband turns violent. Despite being happily married and about to become a father Steve becomes more and more involved in Maya's life, until one day he goes too far in his efforts to protect her... A tale of celebrity and obsession, Maya is an acutely observed, sometimes dark, always assured novel.

Author Biography

Alastair Campbell was born in Keighley, Yorkshire in 1957, the son of a vet. After graduating from Cambridge University in modern languages, his first chosen career was journalism, principally with the Mirror Group. When Tony Blair became leader of the Labour Party, he asked Campbell to be his press secretary. He worked for Blair - first in that capacity, then as official spokesman and director of communications and strategy - from 1994 to 2003, since when he has been engaged mainly in writing, public speaking and working for Leukaemia Research, where he is chairman of fundraising. He has continued to act as an advisor to Mr Blair and the Labour Party, including during the 2005 election campaign. He lives in North London with his partner of 25 years, Fiona Millar. They have three children. His interests include running, triathlon, bagpipes and Burnley Football Club. He is the author of the bestselling The Blair Years, extracts from his diaries, and the acclaimed novel All in the Mind.
