The Best Kind of Beautiful

Author(s): Frances Whiting

Aust Fiction

'There are moments when Frances Whiting writes about family dynamics and relationships where you wonder if the woman has a hidden camera set up inside your soul. On a single page she'll tickle your ribs with three laugh-out-loud gags then punch your gut with some deep observation on living. All heart. All soul. All kinds of beautiful.' Trent Dalton, author of Boy Swallows Universe Florence Saint Claire, former child star, generally prefers plants to people. She's a reluctant member of a musical family with a legendary father, an impossible mother, a sister who can't keep still and a brother who walks to his own beat. Albert Flowers is a people person, life rushing at him from all corners, carrying him to weddings and parties and late nights in rooftop bars. Florence and Albert work together, they plant dreams in the forest together. They think they know each other. But, somewhere between who they are, and who people think they are, lies The Best Kind of Beautiful. PRAISE FOR THE BEST KIND OF BEAUTIFUL 'Florence, a fresh contemporary irresistible heroine, holds a cast of fascinating, brilliantly drawn characters together. Frances Whiting at her best, warm, witty, provocative, a wise observer of human nature, family, life...It's true, you can't put it down.' Quentin Bryce AD CVO

Best Kind of Beautiful by Frances Whiting 


This is a funny human-onion peeling type of story that at its core is an exploration about how we hide parts of ourselves, more often than not these parts are our vulnerabilities. For some people, like reluctant child star Florence Saint Claire and the gentle giant Albert Flowers, these vulnerabilities are ‘The Best Kind of Beautiful.’ Full of quirky characters, music, garden love, grief, familial love and lies this is a true holiday read. For readers who loved Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine or Little Fires Everywhere. Kim
