She was the only person who knew Helen Wilcox was dead... From the rural woodlands of New York to the beaches of Morocco, WHO IS MAUD DIXON? is a wild, kooky, exhilarating novel of suspense, part Patricia Highsmith, part All About Eve

"(Andrews') tale of double identity, a satirical switchback, is hugely entertaining"

Florence Darrow, a wannabe writer working for a New York publisher, tries to exploit having slept with her married boss, but instead gets fired. Hired as an assistant to a famous author known only as Maud Dixon, the amoral Florence passes herself off as Maud when she dies in a car accident in Marrakesh — a place where everyone is “pretending to be someone they’re not”. After all, the woman who wrote Mississippi Foxtrot “was everything she wanted to be”.
