The Book:
Outrageous Fortune: The West Family Album is the ultimate fan handbook to New Zealand’s favourite family, the Wests, and their associates. In a lively four-colour design featuring over 100 photos, the book goes behind the scenes to get the actors’ and writers’ take on the series – with script extracts, a trivia quiz and a drinking game. It also probes the depths (and shallows) of the characters to reveal everything from Cheryl’s recipes to Pascalle’s philosophy for beautiful living, Ted’s racing tips to the Tool Guy code.
