Harriet is 14, The Infinite Wisdom of Harriet Rose is a strange book.

Harriet is 14, The Infinite Wisdom of Harriet Rose is a strange book. It feels like it should be a book for children and yet I'm not sure I'd want my son/daughter to read it. That said, the days when I was 14 (the age of the central character) seem a long time ago (well, 14 years to be precise) and I'm sure I wasn't playing with Barbies and being all sweet and innocent. Although Diana Janney has created hilariously bizarre characters in tacky, precocious Harriet Rose and her enabling and somewhat idiotic mother, the text lacks a viewpoint of its own. Unfortunately, this is its fatal flaw.

When that girl is Harriet Rose, it can’t be an easy decision. With the help of her publishing team – her mother as Publicist, and Nana as Sales Rep – Harriet’s book becomes a runaway success. After all, how many fourteen year olds have as their hero the Roman Emperor and Philosopher Marcus Aurelius and choose Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason as their favourite book (which they particularly like because it has a happy ending)? Yet Harriet’s mother and grandmother think they have the answer. Harriet is soon being mobbed by press, appearing on television and radio as a celebrity author and fighting to keep fans, critics and a French admirer at bay.

Having appointed themselves roles – Mother: publicist; Nana: sales rep; Harriet: esteemed author – they vow to get the book into the hands of a wide readership.
