  • Title: Working For Love
  • Author: Tessa Dahl
  • Published by: Delacorte Press, 1989.
  • Description: Supposedly a novel, it’s actually a thinly-disguised autobiography of her childhood.
  • My Verdict: “A rather tawdry read. Not very successful as a novel, and not much better as an autobiography. Basically it’s all about the feelings of inadequacy that Tessa formed in childhood as a result of her dead sister, impaired mother, and overbearing father. It is interesting to hear a kid’s perspective on those tumultuous years, though.”
