and brought up in London, Amy Jenkins went to Westminster and University
College London where she read law. As the creator of THIS LIFE,
she has won fans in the millions. Her other credits include: TUBE
TALES, BLINK, a short film for Channel 4 films and ELEPHANT JUICE,
her first feature shot by Miramax.
Her first novel, HONEYMOON, was published in May, 2000 to huge
media coverage. HONEYMOON has the sharp, cutting-edge conversations
and jokes of THIS LIFE and a freshness of voice that raises it above
the plethora of "singles" books being launched this year. A prime
time documentary has been filmed for BBC2, all about Amy Jenkins
and the writing of her first novel, was broadcast in July. Film
rights to HONEYMOON have been sold to Columbia Pictures.
'The hottest property in town. You
can feel success rising off her like steam'
'Will certainly have Hollywood's
studios clamouring for the film rights'
