Riassunto: You can tell a lot about a girl by the lists she makes. The most pressing items on Saskia's are the things she wants to achieve by age 30: curating a show of Young British Artists, turning down at least one marriage proposal and becoming a size 10. Trouble is, she is turning 30 in three weeks time.
