The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop

The scandalous life of Ruby Devereaux

From a teenager in wartime England to a veteran of modern-day London – via 1950’s New York, the Swinging Sixties, Cold War Berlin, Venice and Vietnam – Ruby Devereaux has lived one hell of a life: parties, scandals and conflict zones, meeting men and adventure along the way. In a writing career spanning seven decades and more than twenty books, she’s distilled everything into her work. Or has she? Now beyond her 90th year, Ruby’s energy is ebbing and her beloved typewriter put away. Until a call from her publisher presents Ruby with an ultimatum, and the impetus to embark on one last book – ‘warts and all’, as she says. Even in her dotage, Ruby M. Devereux has the power to surprise, because whatever this author does, she does on her own terms. Always. Is Ruby finally about to reveal the secrets of her infamous life?
