What if some of the artists we feel as if we know?Meryl Streep, Neil Young, Bill Murray?turned up in the course of our daily lives? This is what happens to Rose McEwan, an ordinary woman who keeps having strange encounters with famous people. In this engrossing, original novel-in-stories, we follow her life from age 17, when she takes a summer writing course led by a young John Updike, through her first heartbreak (witnessed by Joni Mitchell) on the island of Crete, through her marriage, divorce, and a canoe trip with Taylor Swift, Leonard Cohen and Karl Ove Knausgaard. (Yes, read on.)With wit and insight, Marni Jackson takes a world obsessed with celebrity and turns it on its head. She shows us how fame is just another form of fiction, and how, in the end, the daily dramas of an ordinary woman?s life can be as captivating and poignant as any luminary tell-all.

So dominant has super Serb Novak Djokovic been since he reclaimed the No1 ranking more than two years ago that it has been a rare man indeed who has managed to beat him. It was victory over Roger Federer in Wimbledon 2014 that propelled Djokovic back to the top of the rankings, and in the 170 matches he had played since, he had lost only 15. And when it came to Grand Slam matches, his results were even more... Broaden the picture, and the top seed and defending US Open champion was about to play his 21st Grand Slam final and targeting his 13th title. In 18 of those previous 20 finals, he had played fellow ‘big four’ colleagues, Federer, Nadal, and Andy Murray. And though these three had tested the Serb time and again through their long rivalries, he had gradually built leading head-to-heads over them all. Nadal, having played just two events since retiring at Roland Garros with wrist problems, was beaten in five sets in the quarter-finals. Murray, since reaching his first French Open final, won back-to-back titles at Queen’s, Wimbledon, and the Olympics, but after also running to the Cincinnati final, he ran out of legs in the quarters here. Djokovic had also been suffering the effects of a seven-title season, and pulled out of Cincinnati with a shoulder problem picked up at the Olympics. In a freakish turn of events, he received a walkover in the second round, a retirement after six games in the third, met the lowly ranked Briton Kyle Edmund, who had dispatched seeds Richard Gasquet and John Isner, in the fourth, and got another... The champion would therefore arrive at the final via a bizarre match against Gael Monfils having spent fewer than nine hours on court, compared with almost 18 hours played by his opponent. But Djokovic knew that this opponent, the No3 seed, had in the last three years become as dangerous as all the others. Stan Wawrinka had not just won two Majors, but had beaten Djokovic en route to both titles. ‘Stan the Man’ may have won only four out of 23 previous matches against Djokovic, but the Swiss man’s late-career blossoming began in one of the finest matches of the last decade. It was the fourth round of the Australian Open in 2013, and Wawrinka just missed out, 12-10, in the fifth set. The Swiss would go on to lose another blistering five-setter to Djokovic at the US Open the same year. But come their next meeting in Australia, Wawrinka won in yet another five-set thriller, and marched on to the title. The very next year, at the French Open, he denied Djokovic once more, in the final. So by the time they squared up on Arthur Ashe with another Major at stake, it is fair to say that their Grand Slam rivalry had become one of the most compelling on the tour, one that opposed the relentless, accurate precision of the super-elastic... How, with titles proving elusive and with confidence and ranking dipping in 2012, he determined to try one last time to fulfil his obvious potential, even if, as the words on his forearm reminded him, he ended up ‘failing better’. The new model “Stan the Man” was soon on display in that Australian marathon against Djokovic, and little more than a year later, Wawrinka was a Grand Slam champion, went on to win his first Masters in Monte Carlo, claimed Roland Garros, joined... And though still an unpredictable force on a tennis court, there was no getting away from the fact that he had become a big-time player: big in tennis, big in delivering on the big occasion. Since 2014, he had won in all 10 finals played. Could Wawrinka once again produce his best shot-making on the biggest stage of all, or would Djokovic rise to the occasion, as champions so often do. Well it began in style: a full-blooded rally that would prelude so many more superb points. Djokovic’s extraordinary defensive skills were tested and prevailed, but Wawrinka’s forehand was tested and found wanting to concede an immediate break. In what seemed the blink of an eye, Djokovic had a 4-1 lead, and almost broke again, but gradually Wawrinka was finding his range and responding to the.
