This review is from: The Best of Everything (Paperback)
I know these five young career girls starting out in New York City, and you probably do, too. Rona Jaffe gets it right - the sleazy episodes with drunken lecherous bosses, the awe-inspiring sight of the city at night from someone's plush apartment, the broken hearts and broken dreams, and the excitement and opportunity, too. For the reader immersed in this book, the world shrinks to the thoughts and experiences of these young women, and in each of their stories lies a remembered, or hoped-for episode in our own lives. An intimate and exciting set of vignettes depicting growing up in an exciting place and time.
