Gemma Crisp is the editor of Cleo magazine and this is her first novel – a cross between The Devil Wears Prada and The September Issue … both swiish favourites.
Gemma’s novel centres around Nina Morey, a young woman who’s just landed her first dream job in mag land. Like that’s not amazing enough she then scores the hottest man (jealous yet?) and her bestie is back from o/s to help her party (ok now we’re jealous). Seriously sounds like the perfect life. Or is it?
Yes this is fiction but we suspect the behind the scenes look at life in publishing is probably based on the real tears, tantrums, drama and the excitement of womens mags.
A deliciously good read, you won’t want to miss.
swiish Recommendation # 1: buy this for your girlfriends. They will LOVE it. You will crowned the best friend ever. Everyone wins.
swiish Recommendation # 2: pack it in your beach bag, or read it by the pool … or maybe even kick back on the couch on Boxing Day. A perfect summer read.
