Trade paperback received in the mail from nearby Manchester, Connecticut, USA, through TitleTrader. Smart, funny -- I loved this book. (I'm a huge fan of books about editorial assistants, and this one has fashion, too. Even better.)

From Publishers Weekly
Most recent college grads know they have to start at the bottom and work their way up. But not many picture themselves having to pick up their boss's dry cleaning, deliver them hot lattes, land them copies of the newest Harry Potter book before it hits stores and screen potential nannies for their children. Charmingly unfashionable Andrea Sachs, upon graduating from Brown, finds herself in this precarious position: she's an assistant to the most revered-and hated-woman in fashion, Runway editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly. The self-described "biggest fashion loser to ever hit the scene," Andy takes the job hoping to land at the New Yorker after a year. As the "lowest-paid-but-most-highly-perked assistant in the free world," she soon learns her Nine West loafers won't cut it—everyone wears Jimmy Choos or Manolos—and that the four years she spent memorizing poems and examining prose will not help her in her new role of "finding, fetching, or faxing" whatever the diabolical Miranda wants, immediately. Life is pretty grim for Andy, but Weisberger, whose stint as Anna Wintour's assistant at Vogue couldn't possibly have anything to do with the novel's inspiration, infuses the narrative with plenty of dead-on assessments of fashion's frivolity and realistic, funny portrayals of life as a peon. Andy's mishaps will undoubtedly elicit laughter from readers, and the story's even got a virtuous little moral at its heart. Weisberger has penned a comic novel that manages to rise to the upper echelons of the chick-lit genre.

I'm using this book to restart LaughAtlantis's Chicklit Bookbox 2, which was supposed to restart LaughAtlantis's stalled Chick Lit Bookbox. Unfortunately, my 1st box stalled with the v. first person.

Pulled from the chick lit bookbox. I'd been on a bookray for this one, but it's been stalled for quite some time. Very happy to find this book in the box!

This was a fantastic book. The stress emanates from the pages - I had to stop reading this one before I went to sleep because I got too keyed up and couldn't fall asleep! Although stressful, it was a fun read, and made me really thankful for the great, laid-back job I have.
