9780141009049: Handbags and Gladrags

Emily Pointer would rather jog naked through Harvey Nichols' beauty hall than be seen with last season's handbag. A fashion stylist with Chic magazine, Emily is a natural blonde, a effortless size 10, travels the world for work and gets 30% discount at Prada. As far as she's concerned, life is perfect.So surely a night of wild sex with a hunky Australian photographer during the fashion show season in Milan will be just another fabulous experience to add to the package? Instead, Emily starts to discover that life can be messy- and the designer clothes in your closet can be squeezed out by the skeletons lurking in there too. From the bestselling author of Pants on Fire and a former magazine editor herself, comes the delicious tale of a woman who was kidding herself that another Birkin bag was all she needed to achieve fulfilment.

About the Author:

Maggie Alderson has worked on nine magazines and currently has a weekly column in The Times. She lived in Australia for 8 years, returning here in 2001. Her first novel Pants on Fire was a UK bestseller, and she was a co-editor of the charity anthology Big Night Out. Her most recent novel Mad About the Boy is published by Penguin. She is married with a baby daughter and moves a lot.

From Booklist:

Emily Pointer seemingly has it all--a job as a stylist for the hot British magazine Chic, a killer wardrobe, trips to glamorous locales, and a cosmopolitan husband. So why is she jeopardizing it all for an affair with a roguish Australian photographer? Perhaps because everything's not as it seems on the surface. Emily and her husband have a relationship based more on how they look together than how they feel about each other. Emily's superficiality and her ambivalence about her infidelity initially make her a very unsympathetic character. But, after a somewhat inauspicious introduction, she begins to change--coming to terms with her tumultuous childhood and reexamining her shallow lifestyle. Alderson, a former editor for British Elle, has a lighthearted, engaging style. Her descriptions of Fashion Week--all wild parties, gossip, and thrilling shows--will draw in wannabe fashionistas, but her often flippant attitude toward relationships may alienate more conservative readers.
