When twenty-five-year-old Laura Smart moves from Cleveland to Manhattan to take a job at a magazine, she hopes the world will become her oyster-her Fendi Oyster (this year's must-have handbag) to be exact. Instead, Laura has to deal with the demands of her self-absorbed and quirky boss-the talk-show host turned magazine editor, Cassandra Lovelace. Laura, a Holly Golightly-type character, finds her own romantic and professional redemption in a novel that hilariously sends up the sex-and-celebrity-obsessed world of contemporary women's magazines. Written from the insider's perspective of a former senior editor of Glamour, Manhattan on the Rocks is a sharply observed comedy of manners with a take-no-prisoners spirit. This is a novel for every woman who has ever known in her heart that-even as her world is collapsing all around her-she needs only a Glamour makeover to save her life from ruin.Shea#39;s always trying to fix me up in the hope that it will lure me back to Ohio. ... aquot; Your Jacuzzi!aquot; Laura sank against the sofa pillows again. She couldna#39;t think of anything that would feel better after a treacherous plane ride than slipping into the tankini shea#39;d received at the Blue Lemon, then climbing in a hot whirlpool bath.
