Service95 Recommends is the home of the books we're loving and reviews from our contributors. The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy follows a young American finding herself in 1950s Paris while meeting some questionable characters along the way.

What We Say: “Follow Sally Jay Gorce through her hilarious, romantic and chaotic life in ’50s Paris. Wearing evening dresses in the day, dying her hair pink, and having an affair with a married man, Dundy portrays a life of humour through sex and scandal” – Jamie Styles

What They Say: “Readers turn to it again and again for its jokes, which are very funny and remain so after a dozen readings” – Rachel Cooke
