It's good to have some serious comments on this thread again. As you've probably already worked out, I'm one of the more fluffy-headed members. Sadly, I have no artistic capabilities.

She may, in fact, enjoy this book, reviewed in today's Daily Mail:
The Best Way You Know How by Christine Pountney (Faber, £10.99)
AGED 25, Hannah Crowe leaves her native Canada and heads for London on a mission to improve herself and find a husband.This second ambition is declared in jest, but less than a year later she’s married. So far, so Jane Austen, except that Hannah and Daniel’s romance is a thoroughly modern affair, born of a tipsy night spent together having met at a Brit Art exhibition, their eyes locking across Damien Hirst’s pickled shark. Our heroine is a bolter by nature, and although her intended’s confidence (or is it arrogance?) is intense enough to smother those hobo instincts, it’s not long before their happily-ever-after begins to fray. This is a frank love story, and while it tends towards the pretentious whenever a character opens his or her mouth, its subtle observations on love in a selfish climate have the sting of truth.
