Meanwhile at Waterstones, ex-broker Vita Pease unveiled her City novel “Playing FTSE”

It charts a young female graduate’s adventures in the square mile. Vita – married to fund manager Richard Pease and sister-in-law of the so called Posh-n-Becks of finance Crispin Odey and Nichola Pease – assured the crowd that the book is “entirely fictional”. A fluke then that she dedicated a copy to one former colleague saying “You’re not mentioned … by name.” Financial Times, 10 June 2016.
